Kids and husband loved this one. Took a bit longer than 16 min if you don't have all the veggies cut and ready to go. Challenging to flip the whole tortilla, will probably do halves next time for easier flipping. Great weeknight meal."

Reviewed Dried Cherry Almond Scones

Jan 16, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

As I made these I had a crumbly mess, not even close to a dough. I added another 1/2 cup of cream and grabbed my mixer. That did the trick and I had great dough and the most amazing scones! My husband is not a fan of scones because he finds them to dry. They were very moist and my family is looking for me to whip these up every weekend.
