    Delicious! I liked this recipe as it called for the least amount of ingredients, and it did not disappoint! I substituted fresh buttermilk for the half & half, because I was out. Probably added a bit more moistness too. Light, flaky, buttery scones is what it yielded. Will definitely make these again.

    Very good, was my first time making scones. I was very happy with the taste and was easier than I thought it would be.

    I used dried cranberries and more than recipe called for and I’m glad I did. Scones are soft - not quite as flaky or dense as ones you might get at a bakery, but still quite good. I like the recipe - it was easy to make and tastes nice.

    Really good but flat. Even with more baking powder they didn’t rise. I added chocolate chips and it was even more scrumptious

    Delicious and moist! I live in Colorado so it was a bit dry following the recipe and I added a little more half and half to make the dough adhere better will definitely make these again!

    I made orange cranberry scones with this recipe. I added orange zest and a little juice to the mix, with cranberries, and added about a third cup more flour and they turned out so beautifully. 10/10 Would try again!

    I used half the amount of baking powder, doubled the spices, and substituted 2% milk for half&half, and it worked out deliciously.

    My husband kept going on and on about cranberry scones that his grandmother made. Made this one Sunday morning and it got an A+ from my husband. Easy and quick to make.

    Didn't really follow instructions as I only utilised 1 cup flour and had to add in another prior to pouring in the milk instead of half half after I realised the mistake. Didn't use up all the milk as well. Regardless it turned out pretty yummy except it's not soft and fluffy but cookie like

    Wonderful I make them often and prefer fresh cranberries and wheat flour. They can be made the day before.
