I thought the texture of these scones was fantastic, very moist and soft. I also though they were a bit bland. Next time I think I'll add currants and some extra seasoning, but I will for sure be making these again.

Per other reviewers, increased cinnamon to 1-1/2 tsp. and nutmeg to 1/4 tsp. and added 1/2 tsp. allspice. Also added dried cranberries and increased sugar sprinkled on top to about 1 T. (my husband and son like SWEET!) Worth the extra sugar to get them to eat whole wheat scones! Delicious, moist, terrific flavor - definitely an addition to my baking rotation.

Very good recipe. Great way to get whole wheat into baked goods my kids and husband eat up.

The texture of these scones is just wonderful, but they do need a flavor boost and thus my "good solid" but needs something ranking. I added 1/4 tsp. nutmeg, 1/2 tsp. cardamon, and an extra 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. Also added about 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts and about 1/3 cup golden raisins, though I'd use dried cranberries next time. Mixed in butter in the food processor, just like a pie crust--lots easier! Might toast the walnuts first to get even more flavor.
