I made mine slightly different as I noticed that this recipe is used to make several other scones from savory to sweet. I have a recipe that only uses whipping cream and it's always been fabulous but I tried this one and it's as good or better. I made apricot white chocolate scones with almond frosting. I replaced the brown sugar with white and added 1/2 cup each of cut-up dried apricots and white chocolate chips. I also added a whole cup of cream so the dough stuck together better. I divided the dough in half and mashed it down on a floured board making a 7" circle and cut each circle into 6 pie shapes. Then I made frosting using some more cream and powdered sugar and some vanilla and almond extracts. And a pinch of salt. If I had some toasted slivered almonds I would have sprinkled them in top. Sooo good.
worst recipe I've ever seen! Sorry I've even tried it! Only moisture was from the whipped cream. No way it was enough moisture to begin to hold the dry ingredients together. DONT BOTHER! You'll be very disappointed and even more frustrated as well as wasting ingridients. Looks for better and proven recipes.
Just made these today. I made them with 2% milk and 2 tsp baking powder. They came out great! Careful not to over toast the pecans.
Way too much baking powder. It overpowers the flavors.
I took these into my classes English tea party and they were a hit! Super easy! I cut the scones in half and made mini scones.
