      Based on what others said, I added more apples and cheese (probably about 1 and 2/3 cup of each or so). I also used 1 cup of whole wheat flour and 2 cups of unbleached white flour. The dough was really dry so I added a little more plain yogurt. Instead of kneading and cutting, I made them like drop biscuits and then a larger round loaf that I cut into wedges after cooking. I didn't brush the tops with egg white, just sprinkled on a bit of sugar. They were a big hit! I will certainly make these again!

      I made these today and the whole family liked them. I used two cups whole wheat and one cup white flour. I also added a little more cheese. I baked it in one large round, which worked fine. The dough was quite wet and wasn't really "knead-able", but that didn't seem to affect the quality at all. Will definitely make this again. Thanks Barb!

      These scones looked beautiful, rose nice and high, and the texture was perfect. They were crusty on the outside and moist, tender and light inside. The flavour, however, was disappointing. You couldn't really taste the apple or cheese. I would recommend adding more of both. I dropped the dough onto the cookie sheet rather than kneading and rolling, and got 11 large scones. If the flavour was more pronounced I would rate these 5 stars. I make a lot of scones and these are definitely one of the best as far as texture is concerned. Thanks for posting the recipe.
