This is the BEST recipe. I used fat-free hazelnut cinnamon non-dairy creamer in place of the buttermilk and left out the hazelnuts. A friend of mine from London says they are very authentic scones. Thank you so much for posting this!
This recipe is a new family favorite! I've long been searching for a scone recipe worthy of my favorite bakery scones, and this is the one. I will note however that for my taste the 1 1/2 teaspoons of almond extract is too much -- the almond flavor is so strong that it's like marzipan candy. I cut the amount in half and felt it was perfect, still noticeably an almond flavor but not overwhelming the other flavors. The full cup of chocolate chips will seem like overkill to many, but I'm a chocoholic so I was very pleased! It's also a lovely recipe made with dried cherries instead of chocolate chips.
My dough was not sticky at all...my scones were done in about 14 minutes. Maybe I made a mistake. I think I accidentially left out the brown sugar. They tasted like biscuits and had the same texture- dry and crumbly. I shaped them into hearts for Valentine's Day by putting a glob of dough inside a cookie cutter on the baking sheet and smushing it out into the shape. If I make these again I hope they'll be better.
These are the BEST SCONES I've tasted yet... They are delicous. Although not as easy as they would appear to be you won't be sorry after you've tried them. The Almond extract stands out amazingly and gives the dough an excellent taste. I only had 1/2 cup of chocolate chips so I added in a half cup of cinnamon chips aswell. I also didn't have hazelnuts so I used sliced Almonds instead. The results were incredible. One thing I would reccomend though is to lower down on the chips and nuts unless you like your scones jam-packed with toppings. Another thing the instructions don't mention is that its probably smart to flour the dough on the cookie sheet so that they are less sticky when you put them in to bake. Lastly I personally paint my scones with egg whites for color but I think that's more optional than necessary. As they are the directions are great and easy to follow; the scones are grade A I'll definitely be making these again.
i made these this morning and they were wonderful. i did make a few changes due to the reviews i read. i used vanilla carmel non dairy creamer instead of the buttermilk and i add 4tbsp of chocolate hazelnut spread when i cut in the butter. the hazelnut flavor was fantastic i think in part because of the spread. i will definately make these again.YUMMY
Except for the hazelnuts which I didn't have I followed the recipe exactly. These didn't turn out great for me and not sure what I did wrong. They are a nice golden brown on top but the insides are not completely done. There is also too much almond extract for my taste. I'll try them again but use either less almond extract next time or try vanilla instead. It gives me something good to work with.
