"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...."
"Yum! These were quick to throw together and were very delicious! I used a diced firm pear instead of apples because that's what I had and I would say it worked very well. I also subbed plain yogurt for the buttermilk and 1/2 c oatmeal for some of the flour to give these more tooth. Next time I will go ahead and cut the scones before baking because the only complaint from my crew was that they wanted more crispiness on the outside. Thanks for posting, this one is definitely a keeper :)."
"Well you have posted a TERRIFIC recipe again! I could not find dried apples (go figure) so I used Annacia's hint and chopped up an apple and then dried it with towels to make sure they did not cause the scones to get soggy. It worked! Perfect blend of spices (I did up the nutmeg just a bit as I love nutmeg). Using the applesauce I think is the gem in all of this recipe. The flavor of the scones is heavenly! So glad I tagged this in 1.2.3 Hit Wonders!"
"Delicious! I loved the spices in these scones, it went perfectly with the apple flavor. I forgot to sprinkle the loaf with the cinnamon/sugar before I put it in the oven, so when it was finished baking I just brushed on a little melted butter and sprinkled it on then. A wonderful breakfast treat - thanks for sharing!"
"I wish that I could give these more than 5 stars! They are absolutely stellar. I didn't read the recipe carefully when I tagged it and didn't notice till I was starting to make them that the recipe asks for dried apple, oops. Not having any dried apple I used half of a very fresh and juicy Gala. I used just half to inhibit the moisture addition as much as possible and I diced it very small to spread the moisture out to avoid big wet apple chunks. Well, the recipe still worked beautifully. In 26 mins I had a gorgeous round scone loaf that was well risen and baked to perfection. I cut the sugar content by using 2 Tbsp of Splenda Brown Sugar and 2 Tbsp of regular Splenda, that was the perfect amount of sweetening. I very much enjoyed 2 (*blush*) scones for lunch with cinnamon coffee. Bravo! Made For Photo Tag."
