    Delicious!

    My uncle decided to introduce me to almond milk and bought me a box which I didn't know what to do with it. I found this recipe and decided to give it a try and it turned out very delicious (I didn't have any pears so left them out). Just make sure to beat the icing long enough till all its ingredients are perfectly combined.

    Who Knew you can bake with Silk?

    I suppose I have been living under a rock, but I never thought of using Silk in baking! My pear tree is full, so I thought I would make these scones for breakfast the next day. Well, they were so good, they were GONE before the morning came! DELICIOUS and went down..smooth as SILK.

    Made with vanilla almond milk!

    I made this with vanilla almond milk and it was decadent and delicious! We will definitely be baking these again. I'm going to try with other fruits in place of the pears.

    Not enough flour

    I don't know who you're trying to fool with only 2 cups of flour, but unless you want runny pancakes, that needs to be doubled.

    Good taste

    These have a great taste but the dough was too thin and these were too light to be considered a scone. More like a cake batter than scone. Perhaps it needs more flour and/or less baking powder.

    Coconutty!

    Silk coconut milk seemed the perfect blend with cranberries and pears so I gave it a try. This recipe really came together as quickly as stated and within minutes I had fresh, warm scones and hot coffee (with Silk Coconut milk). The hardest part was not eating too many! I've also tried making it with lemon instead of orange juice and it was delicious. Maybe grapefruit next? Yummm...

    Easy peasey

    This recipe has made me feel like a super hero! I needed a quick recipe with ingredients I had on hand and came across this recipe from silk.com and thought Id give it a shot. Just as they were freshly out of the oven my in laws stopped over unexpectedly...I served these with coffee and tea and got rave reviews. Thanks for my new go-to easy recipe that I think I can switch up the flavors.

    Yum! Yum! Yum!!!

    Let me start off by saying AMAZING!! My son who is 20months is highly allergic to anything that has dairy in it, cooked or not, so I always feel bad when we have a desert he can't have. So about a year ago I started making homemade deserts from scratch, I even made his birthday cake. Well anyway he's been drinking silk since he turned 1 and probably drinks 2-3 gallons a week! I made these for the whole house and they were scrumptious!! My family wanted more, but my son most of all devoured them bite by bite!! Definitely will make again!

    Seasonal specialty

    I made these to serve with pumpkin-flavored tea for an afternoon gathering. I love using seasonal ingredients. The cranberries and orange go well together, and everybody loved the scones!

    Delicious!

    These scones were just delicious and disappeared as fast as I could make them! I used almond milk and added about 1 cup of additional flour. I also added about 1 teaspoon of vanilla paste, half to the scones and half to the glaze. I guess I could've just used the vanilla almond milk, but I only had the regular kind. My family has already requested I make these again...I have a feeling I'll be making these a lot now that pears are in season :)

    Favorite

    This is my favorite scone to make. I usually leave off the glaze portion out as I don't enjoy overly sweet things. I am more generous with zest. I suggest using pears with skin and that are more hard so it doesn't get too squishy. Instead of conola I use Coconut and for me it's the best substitute.
