Looking for ways to use up an overabundance of apples and this was really enjoyed by my family! I added in some walnut pieces for greater taste and it did the trick!

I really liked these for something different for breakfast. I added in some finely chopped walnuts with the apples. I brought some to work to share with my co-workers and everyone gave them thumbs up!

These were ok. I was pressed for time so didn't saute the apples, I did shred them on my cheese grater. We also brushed them with whipping cream and put sanding sugar on top. I used 1 cup of spelt flour and 1 1/2 cups all purpose. True scones have eggs in them. These were just glorified biscuits. Sorry, we eat scones a lot and these were just ok.
