I found this recipe in a booklet from MOTT'S Applesauce and thought that they sounded really good. The booklet suggests serving these with chili.

Wow, these scones are absolutely SUPERB! The cheddar goes great with the applesauce flavour and the sunflower seeds add a lovely crunch. I used Syd's Recipe #324030 for these and the honey added a subtle sweetness, which I thought was great with the cheese. I subbed whole spelt flour for the ap as thats what I had on hand and the nutty taste of it complemented the seeds nicely. Ill definitely make these again! THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this gem of a recipe with us, MRSJSPANTS!

OK...I have finished the eating the 2nd one!!! Whoa Nellie!!! Lazyme...totally amazing. I did however have to use a wee bit more applesauce, probably due to the lack of moisture in my flour as we live in a dry climate. So this is nothing new to me. I will be making more tomorrow to share with friends. DH usually only has one at a time, this time he asked for a second one. Thank you for sharing a great keeper.

Awesome! I made these as directed and we all enjoyed them a lot. I wouldn't change a thing! I made these in Don's memory, including making my family wait to eat dinner until I was done photographing them - LOL! Thanks!
