I have been so busy with my own recipes that I haven't printed off anyone's for quite a while, but I am printing as I write. Both of these look fantastic. I would love some right now before I go to bed. Then I really would have SWEET dreams!

Ah, I've had my chocolate fix of the day. I'm in Oregon where hazelnuts abound. Your scones sound really delicious. I'm so glad I stopped by. I love your recipe. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary

I love scones and these look delicious. I'm also excited to try the Cider...I'm a diabetic and can't drink much of regular. This just looks like a fun blog and I can't wait to see it all.
