My kids and I love to mix the ingredients together and turn out these delicious scones. The tart cherries and the brown sugar and almond streusel complement the tender scones perfectly. —Teresa Ralston, New Albany, Ohio

    Delicious and easy to make. I added a simple glaze of 2 cups powder sugar, 1 tsp. of almond extract and 1 tablespoon of milk to the top.
