    So easy and the best scones I've ever tasted. I used 1 cup white chocolate chips and 1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips and didn't add the nuts. I'm hoping they freeze well.
    I make these and the tropical ones for friends that are ill. I cut them out in heart shapes or round shapes and add a dusting of decorators sugar to the top. I put them in a basket with lemon curd and clotted cream, some teas and nice linen napkins, sometimes a teapot. They are the perfect gift to cheer up a loved friend.
    excellent! I took these to work and everyone raved about how good they were!
    I made these for a tea party with my daughters, niece, and mother-in-law. They were delicious!
    Simply delicious! EVERYONE loves it, so easy and quick.
