    Added a bit more sour cream and a bit of water to moisten the dough. They turned out very well and would definitely make again.

    Love this scone recipe! It was simple to make. I like using melted butter--it is much easier to mix. I followed the recipe exactly except for using dried cherries, plums, blueberries and cranberries instead of raisins. I was a little worried that they were going to be dry but they turned out great. Will definitely make again!

    I had to add just a touch of milk to get the dough to stick together, but they turned out great! I used dried cranberries in place of the raisins. I'll definitely make this recipe again.

    These are terrific scones! My only change was to add a 1/4 tsp. of cinnamon to the dough itself and to use 3 TB of liquid egg white rather than the white of a fresh egg.Scones are supposed to be crumbly, flaky, and perhaps "dry." These are perfect! With cottage cheese for breakfast; a dab of ice cream for dessert; with coffee or milk a great snack.

    Best light scones ever! I even added a couple tablespoons of ground flax seed and they were great.

    I didn't have any currants or raisins so I shredded an apple and used that instead. I found that the dough wasn't coming together so I added a few tablespoons of skim milk to moisten it. The scones were delicious!

    Great texture! Delicious and easy, my new favorite scone recipe. Like some other reviewers, I had to add a little milk to get the dough to hold together.

    These are great. Not too sweet and great texture. My dough seemed very moist so I added a bit of flour. Delicious!

    These turned out well. I didn't exactly follow the recipe. I used a whole egg and really didn't knead the dough because it was too wet. But I have a friend who makes scones all the time and his are wet and they turn out so light and fluffy. Mine were almost as light and fluffy. Not at all dry. I like them this way. I also added cinnamon to the dry ingredients, but forgot to do the final step of sprinkling cinnamon and sugar on top before baking.

    These were very good. I upped the raisins to half a cup, because I like raisins. I also had to cook them almost a half hour at 400 here in MN? They were still a little most, but very delicious!
