TWD: Apple Cheddar Scones



This week's TWD, Apple Cheddar Scones, was selected by Karina, of The Floured Apron. This was a quick and painless recipe which produced a crumbly, yet still moist scone. I thought the combination of apples and cheddar seemed interesting; I'd heard of people eating apple pie with slices of cheddar on top, so I was determined to give this recipe a try. As soon as they came out of the oven, I tried a bit of one and was surprised at how good it was. The taste of apple was subtle, and the savory component of cheddar delivered an unexpected twist. My husband kept saying he didn't taste the bacon. I kept telling him that these were Apple Cheddar Scones, not Bacon Cheddar Scones. He seemed vaguely disappointed that Ms. Greenspan left out bacon in her Apple Cheddar Scones. I told him the book was written by Dorie Greenspan, and not Bob Evans! Please visit the TWD bloggers to view their creations. The full recipe can be found at The Floured Apron, or in Dorie Greenspan's book, "From My Home to Yours".

Bacon sounds like an amazing addition. It would be worth a try at least!

I totally wanted to make bacon and cheddar scones too!!! What a better breakfast scone than THAT. Maybe with extra egg? hahaha. Your hub is smart!

Nice job. They look mighty good and I bet they'd be great with bacon. I was actually thinking about making them with bacon for the boyfriend's birthday breakfast. Yeah, I think they'd be real good...

I think we were ALL disappointed that Dorie "left out" the bacon. ;)

Your husband was right though--bacon would be a great addition to these. Good job.
