    NcMysteryShopper's Note:

    Delicious Scones from the prestigious Culinary Institute of America. Scones aren’t just for tea anymore. Like the humble all-American biscuit, they offer a satisfying addition to almost any meal. These light, flaky crumb and tender texture scones complement any dish. Scones have gone from the classic teatime essential to a trendy and sophisticated anytime snack. These are hands down the most tender and delicious scones I have ever eaten. (The scone dough must be frozen for up to 12 hours before use). For tender, flaky scones refer to these guidelines: 1. Do not over mix. If you work the dough too much, your scones will be tough and chewy. 2. Roll or pat the dough so that it is at least one-half inch thick. Thicker dough results in a better shape and lighter texture. 3. Watch the clock when baking. Like most baked goods, scones continue to bake as they cool.

      These where AWESOME!!! Easy to make, great directions and the taste was out of this world. We had never had scones before, let alone make them so I was not real sure what I was doing. But your directions made it simple. I think I cut mine a little to large as they rose together in the oven and didn't look so pretty - but they tasted great. I'll be doing these again often. I served with French Tart's "perfect cup of tea" and clotted cream with strawberry jam and now both DH and I are addicted. He wants these often and so do I. Thanks NcMS for a great recipe. I'll be posting a picture later even if it's not so pretty.

      Wow, these are wonderful scones. Big, tall, light, fluffy, flaky, and flavourful, just the way we like them. We really enjoyed these, I served them with whipped cream and fresh blackberries and mangoes. It was a very tasty dessert. I can't wait to make these again. I wish that I would have made a whole batch instead of half a batch. I won't make that mistake again...they were gone too quickly. Thanks so much for sharing.
