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.. never did that before, but make sure u do..the texture is wonderful. We are going to serve it with pear butter for breakfast on Christmas Eve morning... thanks for sharing the recipe !

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 used 4 pears (didn't bother to measure, just needed to get rid of them) and because of the reviews I added a little more flavoring. I used cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, and some finely grated orange peel just because I had it. They were very tasty! We ate them with a little butter, and they were sweet enough (but not too sweet) that they didn't need anything else. Will make again :) Thank you

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 out of the fridge and had already mixed it in to the dough, when I realised I'd used plain yogurt instead. I went with it anyway and they still turned out well. Absolutely delicious still warm and covered in honey. Many Thanks for something a little bit different.
