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.
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)
These were very good, but I definitely would not call them scones. At breakfast this morning we dubbed them "Pear Puddles" because the do spread out a good bit and that's what they look like. I used 4 pears (didn't bother to measure, just needed to get rid of them) and because of the reviews I added a little more flavoring. I used cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, and some finely grated orange peel just because I had it. They were very tasty! We ate them with a little butter, and they were sweet enough (but not too sweet) that they didn't need anything else. Will make again Thank you - 24 Apr 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
