I loved this recipe, though I did add a full cup of apples and added in some cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves for flavor. Also I put some frosting on it with spices for my little sister and she just loves it though it's quite as good alone.

These were pretty yummy - I doubled the apple (used a heaping cup instead of half), added a teaspoon of cinnamon, and used half and half with whole wheat flour. With double of the apple I still didn't find the apple flavour strong enough so I might put some more next time. As well, I found cutting them into 6 wedges made really small scones so I might just do quarters next time - but the scones were moist and yummy when they were warm! definitely a keeper.

These are great! I've made them quite a few times now and they have been yummy. I double the apple, add some cinnamon and often use half whole wheat flour. Usually I divide them into small individual scones so I can freeze them and just thaw out one or two when I want a snack. I have also made them with chocolate chips instead of apple but that sort of defeats the healthy part... :)
