One of the best breakfast treats has to be scones. They are quick, delicious, and can be made in a variety of flavors. This week, our TWD recipe was Apple Cheddar Scones, chosen by Karina of The Floured Apron. Instead of fresh apples, this recipe uses dried apples, which can be one of those pantry staples that are always on hand. I like the sliced and dried Granny Smith apples from Trader Joes, as well as their super extra sharp cheddar cheese. I chopped the apples and grated the cheese the night before to save both time and dirty dishes. The next morning the scones were quickly assembled. But, tell me, who can really wait 10 minutes to eat one, especially slathered with butter?!
My OTT (official taste tester) is not fond of cooked apples. (See Danish braid from a recent post.) However, she did comment that the apples in these scones weren’t overpowering, and proceeded to help herself to 4 or 5. Hmmm. Guess not then. In spite of snarfing down a bunch, she did request that I make them again sans apples.
Since I love cooked apples in any form, I thought these were delicious, and will most likely make them again very soon. Many of the other TWD bakers made the scones this week, so please visit their blogs and get more opinions first hand.
