These are super easy to make. I used chunky applesauce and extra sharp Vermont cheddar cheese. They are so delicious. I also added a couple teaspoons of Herbs de Provence and it made them extra savory. Would go great in the winter with tomato soup. I gave them to the staff and teachers at my son's school with crock pot apple butter! Yummy and lots of compliments.
These were REALLY yummy and nice and easy to make. There is so much cheese in these scones, I couldn't really taste the applesauce at all (although they certainly didn't taste bad!). I think I will try one with a little apple butter ot apple slices to amp up the apple flavor when I defrost some (I had to freeze most of them to keep myself from eating them all!). Thank you for posting a wonderfully cheesy scone recipe. :)
