1. I’m vegan so instead of the egg I used apple sauce and I added a little apple cider vinegar to almond milk (to make “buttermilk”). I also added an extra teaspoon of vanilla and almost a cup of extra flour. I creamed the sugar, salt and baking powder with Earth Balance stick butter before added the sifted flour. I have an old Scottish scone recipe that I usually use but I wanted to see what an American scone would be like (don’t judge lol). The dough for these was a lot sweeter than I’m used to. They’re currently in the oven and look delish!

    Thank you for sharing this recipe!
    ****Just thought I’d through some replacements out there for people with allergies or alternative diets.

      Hi Kamney,
      Thanks for your note. The substitutes would definitely be helpful.

  2. Hi, I would like to try this recipe, but I am not sure how much flour should I use. How many gramms would be two and a half cups? I have cups of many sizes

    Thanks from Italy!!

      Hi Cinthia,
      I’ve updated the recipe box with the equivalent weight in grams. Hope that helps.

  3. We are gluten free and I substituted the flour with Pamelas gluten free flour blend and they were amazing. People couldn’t believe they were gluten free.

      Glad to hear, Daisy. Thanks for the note!

  7. What if I add chopped walnuts instead of chocolate chips and add 2 tsp of maple extract instead of 1 tsp vanilla? Do you think it will turn out fine?

    1. Author

      Hi Roxanne,
      Yes, I would think it would work although I haven’t tried it myself. Let me know how it turns out. Thanks.

  8. Mine didn’t fluff up.. I don’t know what happened…I followed the recipe to a tee, and even accounted for our high altitude.. any suggestions?

      Hi Kim,
      Hmmm… is your baking powder fresh or at least within the expiration date? .

  9. After being snowed in for days, I’m running low on flour and had enough for one more treat so I made these. They were delish! I ran out of butter so I used vegetable shortening and I also added more chocolate chips. Everyone loved them. Thank you!

      Ah baking, the perfect activity on a snowy day. Glad to hear, Justine.

  10. I just wanted to let you know that I made your amazing scones the other day and we all loved them.
    I started a personal photography project and took some pictures of my scones (they are not as pretty as yours!) and sent a link back for the recipe here =)

    Thank you! They were wonderful!

      Hi Ashleigh,
      Glad to hear you liked it. We got snowed in too yesterday, and they’re predicting more snow tomorrow.

      1. This winter has been unreal! Thank you again for the lovely recipe–so perfect for all these harsh winter days =)

  11. Just made these for a snow day breakfast treat. They are delicious. Can’t wait to make them again and again and again, and so on. =) Do you think it would be easy to make them as cinnamon chip scones? Thanks for sharing.

      Hi Diana,
      Thanks for the note. Glad to hear it turned out.

  13. I make these all the time for my boyfriend. He LOVES them! I’ve been freezing the butter then using a cheese grater instead of a pastry blender and it works great

    1. Author

      Hi Allison,
      Well, that’s really clever. I’ve never tried using a grater. Good to hear about the boyfriend. I used to try to impress my boyfriend, who is now my husband, with all kinds of baked stuff. It also helped that he gave me my first KitchenAid stand mixer long before we were married!

  14. Can you make these ahead and freeze?

    1. Author

      Hi Cindy,
      I haven’t tried freezing, so I can’t really say for sure. Usually, when I bake scones they are all gone a few minutes right out of the oven.

  15. I made these scones for the first time the day of my “grown up tea party.” I was so nervous, but they turned out perfectly! Thanks for laying the recipe out so beautifully and clearly.

So maybe its more than love, its become OBSESSION! all my friends have loved it and ask for more! Well done and easy to follow! You’ve stolen my heart and fulfilled my need for chocolate at breakfast!

      Hi Anika,
      I’m glad you like it. Thanks for the feedback and try to keep in touch!

  17. just tried these out as an experiment. i was VERY surprised to see they looked EXACTLY like the picture you posted when they came out of the oven. as for the question about the soft butter: the butter i used was extremely soft even though i used it directly out of the fridge and it worked just fine. i will definitely be making a batch of these to bring to my next MOPS meeting!!

    1. Author

      That’s good to know. Thank you, Francine!

  18. Do you have to cut the butter when it’s cold or will soft work?

    1. Author

      Hi Julie,
      I’ve always used cold butter. I haven’t tried cutting soft butter with dry ingredients, so I’m not sure how that would turn out.

  19. I’m always worried when I follow recipes online because they don’t always turn out well and often don’t look anything like what’s in the picture. BUT, I made your chocolate chip scones and they turned out exactly like your photos. Not only that, they tasted really good too!! Yessssss!! Such a good feeling when you get what you’re supposed to get after following a recipe. I have just a handful of recipes that actually turn out the way they’re supposed to, and this one’s going in as one of ’em. All my friends loved it! Thank you!! Very very easy to make too! Oh, the only change I made was to pull the scones out about 5-10 minutes sooner bc mine browned sooner bc of the altitude. = )
