Hi there, now this is interesting. I think you guys solved my problem. My scones always break apart or undercook. I changed the low oven temperature I cook at, to the one suggested in the directions. That did the trick! So happy I found this scones recipe, Thanks a lot! 5.00

Great and easy scones recipe 🥯🧁. Love the taste and the texture. The sones are moist but tend towards the dry side as well. Perfect balance. Loved it. ❤️ 5.00

I bake for a living and am always on the lookout for new ideas. I supply scones to many restaurants and since switching to this scones recipe, my orders have doubled. Thanks for the variations, but, the classic scones recipe works best. Love this recipe. 5.00
