Such a great recipe!!

I’ve adapted this recipe to make it my own by adding a teaspoon of orange liqueur and a 1/3 cup sugar. These are heavenly & without craisins & orange, you can add any mix ins to your liking!

Delicious as an afternoon snack with coffee or tea. I added three times the sugar, a little orange juice with the zest, some extra craisins, and some chopped walnuts. Topped with powdered sugar . I meant to add a splash of vanilla, but I forgot. :-)

Great scones

Made these with frozen cranberries and just added a little extra sugar. Also made a glaze to drizzle on top. These were delicious. Can't wait to make them again.

I can't tell you how many times I have made this recipe. It is absolutely delicious! I do put my own twist on it though. I increase the butter to a 1/2 cup of butter, add almond extract and add more Craisins. I then form it in a circle and refrigerate usually overnight, and as soon as I take it out of the refrigerator, it's baked at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes or so until done. As soon as it comes out of the oven, I drizzle a glaze all over the top which is a combination whisked together of almond extract, water and powdered sugar. This soaks into every place on the scone. The texture of the scone is more like a biscuit and not dry and crumbly as a usual scone would be. I haven't meant anyone yet whose eaten it and not fell in love.
