Apple Cinnamon Scones

"***Updated 4/8/08 - This recipe has been adjusted regarding bake times and temperature. That seemed to correct the problems stated by the reviewer (based on her baking these again.) The reviewer did suggest to just use a powdered sugar/milk glaze over the scones also. Thank you to "Chef #532663" for all her help in figuring out what when wrong the first time.**** From Pillsbury recipe clip-out. I made these years ago and unfortunately cannot remember the of the few recipes I did not write down a comment outside of the date I made them."

    So good, light and fluffy with that great cinnamon and apple flavor. I will cut the apple smaller next time or I may even grate them.

    We loved your scones, what with the cinnamon & apple combo! One change I made was to use a nicely rounded measure of the apples, but other than that . . . Especially nice, slightly cooled, but then I find that is usually the case with scones! The last half of the batch was nicely served up with a thin spread of apple butter!

    They taste good but are really, really dry! They diffenently need something to make them moist.

    Mmmm, yummylicious scones!!! :) I made these for breakkie today and everyone raved about them! They are sweet and fruity with a lovely cinnamon touch. I wouldnt change the amounts of sugar used or make an additional glaze as I feel that would be way too sweet. I like them as is. I only needed 1/3 cup of milk, but that might have been due to my using spelt flour. These tasty treats baked up in 18 minutes in a 400°F oven and were just super tasty! I ended up with 15 scones of 2.5 inches in diameter. THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this lovely recipe with us, Hokies! Ill defintely make it again! Made and reviewed for Potluck Tag Game Novembre 09.

    These scones are not overly sweet and have a nice taste however my husband feels that they need an icing sugar glaze to sweeten them up a little. I mixed them in the food processor and it produces a very sticky dough. I put the entire mixture on my silpat and cut them into 12 triangles and baked them that way. It took 22 minutes in a 400*F oven. Thanks for the recipe, it is a nice alternative to the ones I usually bake up.
