These were amazing! I just love Carbquick. :thup: The only thing I did different was use sugar free white chocolate since that's all I had in the house....

Simply amazing!!! Made them with Davinci cookie dough syrup to replace 1/2 the sweetener and a couple of tablespoons of cream cheese to add a little more moisture to the dough. Yum.

These are wonderful. I'm glad I used the last of my tiny box of Carbquik on these! So light and flaky -- I dont usually like scones because they always seem to hard and chewy, but these are really light... and smell just like warm chocolate chip cookies right out of the oven. :)

Thanks, Becki! :)

What is Carb Quick and where do I get it? Is it like Atkins Baking Mix? :help:

I made these this morning, after FINALLY buying some CarbQuick. In fact, this is the first recipe I've made with CQ.

VERY GOOD - I'm impressed by the lack of aftertaste I've gotten with other 'flours' in lc recipes, and the crumb is just like the 'real' thing (i.e. non-low-carb scones). I highly recommend this recipe AND a big thumbs-up to CarbQuick as an excellent low-carb flour substitute. Happy Turkey Day Weekend to everyone!
