Recipe says 4 tablespoon of cream cheese but then state 2 ox. But according to the cream cheese 4 tablespoons would be half the 8 oz. box--so that would mean 4 oz. so is it 2oz or 4 oz
Maple Nut & Pear Scones
Delicate pears, pecans and maple flavor make these scones really special. Our makeover of this tender, flaky breakfast pastry uses reduced-fat cream cheese, canola oil and just a touch of butter to replace 1 1/2 sticks of butter. The addition of rolled oats and whole-wheat pastry flour boosts fiber and enhances the nutty flavor. For more fruit intensity, serve with pear butter.

These were good, but I plan to make a couple of minor tweaks when I make these again. (1) Throw the butter and cream cheese in the freezer for a bit before putting in--this should help give the scones a bit more volume when the bake up (they were a little flat.) (2) Don't use the full amount of the buttermilk mixture--it was too much.
My family love these scones. The dough is very sticky if you use all the liquid. Add a bit at a time.
