TWD - Cream Scones

I've never had a lot of luck with scones.  That is, they have always seemed rather bland to me.  This week's TWD recipe was chosen by Lynn of Cafe Lynnlu

We did not have much in the way of breakfast foods this weekend, so I decided Saturday morning to go ahead and make the scones.  I had all the ingredients except for raisens so I substituted dried cherries. 

These were fast to prepare - you don't want to over handle the dough - and they cooked quicker than Dorie's instructions.  My only disappointment was that I hurriedly cut them and they were not all the same size.  Does not affect the taste however.  Chandler was busy on a carpentry project and he was delighted to enjoy a little mid-morning snack of scones.  These were a big hit and I will definitely make them again and again.

Well, those look just perfect to me. I came THIS close to putting some currants in mine but decided to go plain. Glad I did. And glad these worked for you.

I was worried I handled my dough too much but they were fine. I love the addition of dried cherries!

Dried cherries would be a great addition. This is a recipe I will make often.

Your scones look great-doesn't matter how you cut them. I think that's part of the charm. Thanks for baking with me.
