    Very tasty, the orange vest comes through and is delicious. When doing again, I might add just a dash more milk. I’m a lover of scones, but don’t add sugar to them, so I didn’t add any sugar, and they were way sweet enough especially with the dried fruit. Thanks for sharing shecooksforboys” coz so do I!!
