    This is one easy and great scone recipe to make and I have made it twice in two days. I agree they are great right out of the oven with loads of butter on it.. However, they are equally tasty cold. The second time I cooked it I added cajun spice to it which seemed to bring out the flavours of the bacon and cheese - ultra tasty.. the other thing I didn't grate the onion the second time, just chopped it finely and I kneaded it a little bit and used a glass to cut them all out and altogether made approximately 18..They went down a treat with my husband and colleagues.. So, thank you so much for the great recipe!!!! Loved it and one I will certainly be making over and over..  -  14 May 2012  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    Something else. Forgot to mention that you cut the dough into 12 pieces before baking. I do not seperate the pieces until after the they are cooked  -  24 Jun 2009  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
