“I just wanted to let you know that I finally had time to make the biscuits again and they turned out perfectly! I don’t know what I did wrong with the first batch, but the trick about shaving the butter and freezing it is definitely the way to go. I thank you so much for your phone call and the tips you gave me - customer support doesn’t get any better than you!”
Cindy DeLano Kowalski
Finger Lakes Bed and Breakfast
Penn Yan, NY

“Such a wonderful city! (Edinburgh, Scotland) But I never found a scone there that could hold a candle to yours!!”
I should note that she and I each spent 2 weeks in Scotland this summer, and were discussing and comparing our experiences.

“I think I have 4-6 recipes for scones - and NONE can touch yours. Thank you! I have made 2 so far - eating and freezing — and I know the rest will be equally wonderful. It is going to be great fun to make the rest!”

“Of course, another twist on your fabulous scones. I took oatmeal scone mix, put half the brown sugar in the mix, folded in cranraisins and chopped walnuts. Then put the rest of the brown sugar on the tops and bake. Crunchy and delicous! Served them this morning to our guests who now live in England. They have access to any number of “cream tea places”. They said they were just incredible! We thought so too.”

“A worker is replacing the foundation of my garage. He started three weeks ago and I gave him a scone (made from a competitor’s mix). Today, he said, “I like your scones. Would you make me some more?” So, despite being wildly busy, because he asked for it (and the buttermilk I had bought for the first batch of your scones was nearing the expiration date), I stopped what I was doing and made a batch. He said “They’re even better.” (I simply added defrosted frozen blueberries to your oatmeal scone mix.) I myself rated them A+ . I swear.”

“Just made scones. I’ve had scones before and I’ve attempted to make scones before. None of my previous scone experiences have been anything to write home about. Oh my God!!!! These are great! …Can’t wait to try them out on guests in the morning.”
Jan Chamberlain

Darien, GA

“We LOVED the scones and biscuits-so easy to make, and the option for freezing is a bonus!”

“Your original recipe scone mix is without doubt the best scone mix I have tasted, EVER. My parents were Irish and English and thus I have been raised on scones since childhood. My family has always been critical of scones here in America as they just don’t measure up. Your mix was perfect, easy to prepare and most delicious.”

Sometimes the story is just too good to condense into a couple of sentences. For a great story about our scones from a Louisville, KY innkeeper—please go here and check out Nancy’s blog!

“I’m not sure we could do Christmas without your scones. I am the manager of a 45 bed Emergency Department and my staff have now become great admirers of your scones. I always take food on the holidays and now they won’t let me come unless I am bringing scones. The most frequent comment is “I usually hate scones…..they are so dry. But these are fantastic! I ate three!!!!!”

“I tasted the scones today. Incredible! We mixed some chocolate chips into some of them-my daughter loves them! The scones are delicious. Just the right texture and just the right amount of slight sweetness. Wonderful!”
Gail Gastelu, Publisher

Sparta, NJ

“Just a quick note to say Thank You for your prompt and reliable service. Your scones have received nothing but rave reviews from my family, friends and guests. Kudos!
Our best to you and your blooming business venture!”
Donna L. Payne, Owner/Innkeeper

“[I made] One batch plain, the second batch with chopped pecans. Slightly but not overly sweet. Crusty outside, soft (but not too soft) inside… These are very good scones…”
…and then later: “I baked the oatmeal scones over the weekend. They are even better than the original ones. DH and I fought over them. Really primo. Many thanks again.”
Janis Badarau

“I still feel guilty with all the compliments I get for your scones. I do add something like orange juice and orange peel and cranberries for example…but I do accept the compliments graciously. Thank you for making such a wonderful product.”
