Delicious! Loved the mix of sweet, sour and savory. The vanilla-pepper butter was an excellent added touch. I ended up baking the scones much longer than the time listed. All told, it was about 23 minutes to get a nice fluffy inside and golden-brown outside.
I am using this for Christmas presents. I have gotten rave reviews from those I experimented on. Just one thing. The dough is very sticky.
Excellent scones! . Not too sweet, texture not too dry or crumbly, The pepper is subtle, a nice complement to the tastes. Will definitely make again.
