TWD apple cheddar & apple cinnamon scones...





This really is my kind of recipe...simple, delicious, quick...you get where I'm going with this. The original recipe calls for dried apples & cheddar cheese. While those are wonderful on their own, I thought a little cinnamon and nutmeg in place of the cheddar would make a nice sweet option. I was right. I made half with apples and cheddar & half with apples, cinnamon & nutmeg. The apples in both scones are really just a subtle hint of sweetness that really was tasty.
I have made scones many times before, and I found this to be the easiest recipe yet, and with the same wonderful results as other, more time consuming recipes.

Thanks Karina for the excellent choice! For the complete recipe you can visit Karina at The Floured Apron, or for all of Dorie Greenspan's amazing recipe's, her book , Baking: From My Home to Yours would be a fabulous addition to any kitchen!!

Love the pictures and the spice additions sound great!

Such fun to run a little "taste test" competition and get to compare the results. Sounds like they were both a winner to me, as I think both combos are a hit.

Wow, those look perfect - how'd you make that out of the sticky sticky mess of that dough?

I did the very same thing -- half apple cheddar and half apple cinnamon -- with the exact opposite results. Yours look fabulous and mine were a disaster. They look perfect!

LyB said...

I love the idea of making a different version with half the dough, they sound delicious!

Rebecca said...

Oooh, apples, cinnamon, and nutmeg. YES.

Shari said...

Great idea to do half with cinnamon and nutmeg instead of cheese! Sounds delish.

Your scones look picture perfect! How did you use a cookie cutter on them, because my dough was far too sticky to cut?
