    These scones are wonderful. Very moist and toasty on top after cooling. I thought my finished dough was a bit dry before brushing with heavy cream and sprinkling with sugar, but the scones came out great. Thank you, Martha and Lauren! Another awesome recipe!!!

    I made these today and they were a hit with everyone! I made cherry and also substituted apricots for the cherries in one batch and they were just as good.

    The BEST homemade scones. Ever. Only thing you should do differently is mix it by hand. Pinch the butter with your fingers instead of trying to mix with a pastry cutter or machine. Makes it a lot moister.

    Just made this and WOW! Tender and sweet and delicious. Not dry or miserable like so many scones.
