Exception 1- I had a few more strawberries left so I used 1.5 cups strawberries roughly chopped. Mmm Strawberries!
Exception 2- Since I keep vanilla sugar for my coffee ( basically stick your old scrapped vanilla beans into a sugar pour container and shake) I used vanilla sugar in these scones and on the top which was awesome.
Exception 3- These were just for me, because I was craving them, so I did not do the pretty round cutouts but instead used my bench scraper to cut and spread them apart into 20 pieces. Not nearly as cute but tasted great. I think the cookie cutter would be awesome for a brunch or even a heart cutter for valentines or a bridal shower brunch. But just for myself this worked.

Overall: 9 out of 10 forks
A very good recipe quick and easy and super tasty. I could taste a little of the basic aspect of the baking soda so I wonder if a smidge less would be good but delicious quick and easy to pull together on ingredients that were already in my house. I will be making these again and I suggest you do as well.
Oh and if you do not already subscribe to Joy the Baker I recommend that you do so she is entertaining and comes up with delicious things frequently.
