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!
Great recipe. Thnak you
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.
I have to admit I thought these were quite delicious. I left the apple peel on the apple and used Gouda instead of cheddar as that was the only cheese in the fridge. I didn't measure the buttermilk because of the concerns of the other posters, but I had to add significantly more flour during the kneading process because they were quite soft. The only other change was the use of high gluten bread flour, again out of necessity. Quite delicious and I can't wait to eat one for breakfast tomorrow!
Very good flavor. A hit with the whole family. I shredded the apples also.
very delicious scones! loved the apple and cheese together, great flavour! I did have to bake them longer than called for; about 25 minutes total. Thanks for posting I will be making them again, somehow missed taking a photo, good excuse to make them again! lol
These scones (made according to recipe) were too wet to knead so if I made them again I would only add ½ cup of the buttermilk and then more if needed. They came out rather flat, but tasted good!
These turned out great. I made them a little flater and cut them into 12 wedges as they were for 7 year olds. They were well liked and baked perfectly on my pizza stone.
These are good .. I had a little trouble with the dough after adding the buttermilk, it was very soggy and wouldn't hold its shape .. I added more flour and baking powder until the dough came together .. My husband thought these scones were good with jam .. thanks
