About this recipe: These drop scones are much smaller than traditional scones but still very tasty. There's no need to roll out the dough, you simply drop the batter onto a baking tray before baking. Ideal when served with tea.
If pears aren't in season, feel free to use tinned.
Ive used an alternative: coconut flour (bought at Holland + Ba) making them a little crumblier and gluten free Got to love the fact they made 50% more yield to - plus an expert review* called them 'melt in the mouth'! *Expert = my mother - 14 Apr 2017
these were good and made better with some apricot jam on top! next time i would add more cinnamon. - 11 Mar 2012
We just finish baking the scones and they are wonderful...light, not really, really sweet but still have a hint of sweetmess...we even sifted the brown sugar with the other dry ingredients.. never did that before, but make sure u do..the texture is wonderful. We are going to serve it with pear butter for breakfast on Christmas Eve morning... thanks for sharing the recipe ! - 23 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
