    Karen From Colorado's Note:

    Use a firm eating apple for this recipe. Braeburn, Gala, Granny Smith and Haralson are all good choices. Soft or excessively juicy apples will add too much moisture.

      I love scones and have tried a number of recipes, but these are the best so far. They have a wonderful crust that's rich and buttery, and the inside is tender and moist. I used Granny Smith apples and didn't change anything about the recipe. I stuck an apple slice in the top of each triangle before baking, and drizzled the cooled scones with a thin icing made from confectioners sugar and a bit of milk. They are absolutely "to die for".

      Even though I didn't love the ginger as much as I thought I would at first, I do love these scones. I've never had a scone before and I expected them to be dry. These were nice and soft. I have made these again and again. Oh, and I use 1/2 whole wheat flour and the taste and texture is still wonderful. The only other thing I do is to spray and 8 inch cake pan and press the dough into the pan before turning it out onto the cookie sheet and cutting it into 8. I simply find that this is less of a mess and helps me to shape the scones a little more easily.
