I'm not too familiar with making scones, so my review may not be educated. The dough seemed very wet, therefore when I dropped on parchment paper with a cookie scoop, they spread and baked rathe...

This was amazing and very easy to do. I made no changes and they were delicious. I had them with my coffee this morning, heavenly.

Added the salt to the batter. Used reconstituted buttermilk. Thanks, will make again.

Use buttermilk instead of the silk and the scones will rise beautifully and taste much better too!

I followed the recipe and my first batch turned out like flat round pancakes, slightly raised.
