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... :)

These were good! We added craisins for a little extra zing and used margarine and soymilk instead of butter and cow's milk (which made the recipe vegan). I like how these aren't too sweet.

My very first home made scones ... I thought they were wonderful! I was careful not to over work them. I had heard that can make scones tough (like my sister's :-) These were as good as any coffee shop scones. I'm very happy with them - without any changes to the original recipe.

Very good but was hoping for a more satisfying apple taste-will increase to a full cup next time I make these...and a touch of cinnamon sounds good too. Thank you Wendy13 for the idea and you, Amamda2, for the recipe.

Gosh, I forgot to read the part about butter and marmalade and they're already all gone. I guess when I make them next, I'll have to try to remember. These were sure yummy -- thank you for such an easy recipe.

Oh my Goodness!! I'm in awe! After I added a tad more flour they were the yummiest scones I've ever, ever eaten! (Even better than Starbucks!) Thanks SO much... These will be my sat. morning staple!

A delicious recipe! I did it all in my food processor, see my full details on my cooking blog below. The only thing it was sticky dough so I had to add a little more flour, but all in all, excellent! The taste was wonderful with the cinnamon on top! I added butter and Dutch apple preserves once baked, A+!<br/><br/>http://tiffanycooks.cyberphreak.com/?p=381

Not sweet enough. I even added the additional spices as others suggested. They do have good texture, though, and they rise really nicely.
