These were wonderful. Even dried fruit-hating Hubby and Boy liked them. They are easy to make, but the texture is perfect. Crumbly and moist at the same time, with a rich and creamy flavor. I will absolutely be making these again.
One caveat: this recipe makes a TON of scones and one scone is very filling, so I would plan to make these when you have company, or plan on serving them as afternoon snacks or for two breakfasts or give some away or freeze some. As good as these were, we were getting a bit tired of them on the third day. After a day or two, also, the icing starts to sink into the scones and the texture suffers a bit. These are definitely best when they’re fresh, so invite some people over for breakfast to help you eat these!
