My thoughts
This was just okay for me and they really didn’t look like scones. Since making my Lemon Merignue Cranberry White Chocolate Scones with Lemon Glaze I know what scones look like and these did not resemble scones to me at all. When I formed them they didn’t rise and they spread out and had a muffin or cake consistency more. When they started spreading in the oven I moved a few to muffin liners so they would at least be round and not flat. Another cooking club member mentioned she had to do this recipe twice. I have a policy on this I don’t do magazine recipes twice when they are triple-tested to get into the magazine. I don’t want to waste more ingredients to possibly get the same result. No thanks.
