I have made these scones many times, and they have always turned out perfect for me. I use a Granny-Smith apple and I shred my own cheddar cheese (when they pack the shredded, they put something with it to keep it from clumping). You have to have a very light hand with scone dough, don't knead it much. My picky DS loves these!

Maybe with some major modifications I could make this again. But the dough tasted bland, it didn't cook in the middle and the edges were almost burnt. The apple/cheddar flavor which is usually good was not a good match with the dough. Probably fixable but needs a lot of work.
