    I've made these scones several times. My family loves them - not too sweet, just the right amount of flakiness, and nice blend of flavors. We dust them with cinnamon sugar just before eating.

    These scones were very pretty served with a dusting of confectioners sugar. The texture was a bit too dry and crumbly.
