The easiest and best scone recipe ever! Used dried cranberries and were great warm from the oven. Will eat tomorrow w/rasberry jam.

Oh they're yummy. Warm and fragrant, nicely browned crunch to the tooth on top and soft slightly chewy crumb inside. Delicious, and easy to make.

These scones are quick, easy and delicious! I didn't have currants so I used some chopped dried cherries. My husband, who usually puts butter on everything, just used a small bit of raspberry jam and couldn't believe how moist and delicious they were. Excellent for company or just the two of us.

Try with craisins or mini choc chips, and add 1 tsp of lemon or orange zest. Excellent recipe, I could eat these every day. Made them for St Patricks Day. Thanks Cooking Light!

Delicious! Not too sweet, moist - nice to have a scone recipe I can make when I don't have buttermilk in the house. I subbed Craisins and diced up about a tablespoon of crystallised ginger and subbed lemon extract for vanilla. I'll definitely make these again, and try different fruits - great basic recipe to play with!

really simple & easy recipe! I used dried cranberries instead of using currants and they turned out just wonderfully! Perfect for breakfast with a morning coffee. =)

This is one of my absolute favorite recipes! When I have been out of currants, I have used strawberries, and even chocolate chips for my kids. I highly recommend this recipe.

Amazing lighter scone recipe! Very light an fluffy and flavorful. Instead of currants, I added about 1/4 dried cranberries and 1/4 dried, chopped dates. I also added about 1 tablespoon Greek yogurt and 1 1/2 tsp. lemon juice to make it more like a buttermilk scone. Everyone raved about them and couldn't believe how healthy they were!

I've tried many scone recipes: this is the best; the scones are even good the 2nd day. The dough comes together beautifully: not too dry; not too wet.

Can you make the dough a day or two ahead of time? I'm having company staying for the weekend and I'd like to not work in front of my guests and just pop them in the oven in the morning.

I added a bit more milk as the dough was quite dry. Good solid recipe
