TWD: Apple Cheddar Scones


I almost skipped out on this week's recipe.  We had a busy weekend and I spent all day today dragging behaviorally challenged elementary school children around historic Philadelphia.  But I came home, sat for a bit and forged ahead.  I am glad I did because this has been my favorite of he four recipes I've done so far!  I found it a snap to make (i didn't find the dough as problematically sticky as my fellow TWDers) and the flavor is subtle but rich.  I love the combination of fruit and cheese (who doesn't?) and it comes through wonderfully in these scones.  They are light and just crumbly enough.  I did take the liberty of adding some freshly grated nutmeg, cause it goes oh so well with the feature ingredients.  Today, I'm a happy blogger.  Check out The Floured Apron, where host Katrina has posted the whole recipe.

They look great! I agree about the subtleness yet richness of these scones. That's exactly what I thought when I had them. It's a good thing you didn't skip out this week.
