    Very good and easy to mix up fillings.

    I really liked these. Didn’t have any fruit this time but the directions really helped. Usually my biscuits, pie crusts, whatever, are tough. But these directions really helped with the technique. I kept the fat and liquid really cold this time and didn’t working about mixing well, and that’s the trick.

    Fantastic if you halve the sugar and skip the sugar on top. Perfect texture and were great with frozen raspberries.

    I made these for my first attempt at making scones. I followed the basic recipe exactly and added 1/2 tsp nutmeg and 1/3 cup of dried blueberries. They were amazing! They were as good as any I have ever purchased. A definite keeper.
