Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deliciously moist! My family recently tried this recipe, as we love scones. They came out fluffy and moist just the way we like them. My family couldn't even tell that they weren't made with granulated sugar and I felt guilt-free eating them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great spice! I was a little hesitant to try this recipe because ginger is a strong flavor and I didn't know how the Truvia would affect the taste. The scones turned out to be a hit! my friends wanted to know how I made them a bit lighter in calories :)
