Because I used ingredients on hand, I opted to use a chopped fresh Granny Smith in place of dried. The result was a dense, moist, sweeter scone that did NOT require any additions (butter, curd, jam, etc). Spices upped the 'oomph' in this flavorful scone. Great with coffee. 5 Stars from toddlers to adults. No leftovers to save for later....
