This is a very old recipe. Serve these flavourful scones warm with butter. They may be a little heavy but you can lighten them up by using an egg in place of some of the milk if you like.
the scones didn't have enough flavor - not enough molasses, not enough spice. they were also too dry as is; I added more milk... rather a disappointment.... - 26 Nov 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
A great scone! I scaled the recipe down to eight (8) and it worked wonderfully. The molasses favor is very subtle and I would almost recommend adding more. Would this change the consistency? This is not a sweet scone, so those looking for more sweetness might want to jazz it up a bit. Overall, the scones are light and fluffy and would be delicious with any preserves. Apricot comes to mind immediately! - 25 Apr 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
These scones are very good. I decreased the cinnamon to 1/4 teaspoon for my fiance and they are still very flavorful. Easy to make- I used my KitchenAid mixer with excellent results. A quick favorite! - 27 Jan 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
