We just finish baking the scones and they are wonderful...light, not really, really sweet but still have a hint of sweetmess...we even sifted the brown sugar with the other dry ingredients.. nev...

These were very good, but I definitely would not call them scones. At breakfast this morning we dubbed them "Pear Puddles" :) because the do spread out a good bit and that's what they look like....

I didn't measure the pears just used the last 3 that were in my fruit bowl. I can't get half and half in the UK so I usually use light cream. I wasn't paying attention when I took the container ...

I used whole wheat flour instead of ap flour, 3 T honey instead of brown sugar, oil instead of butter, and soy milk in place of half and half. Maybe I should not review this with all my changes...

This are excellent. Nice, soft, thick dough. I added 1/2 tsp ginger to the batter and 1 pear=1 cup so for those who said batter was too thin and they spread like puddles, pay attention to the re...

The batter for these are more like a dumpling, a bit wetter than a real scone batter. I didn't have half and half so I substituted buttermilk for the liquid. We enjoyed these for our afternoon ...

I'm going to have to disagree on this one. The dough was far too wet and the scones spread too much. The pear flavor was barely noticeable. They tasted OK to me, but not much like a scone at all...

so yummy. slightly sweet. my husband and kids all love them!

These scones were very good. Just enough sweetness and the pears are flavorful. I peeled and chopped 3 pears to yield the 1 cup called for in the recipe.
