Apple Cheddar Scones


This week's TWD recipe came from Karina of The Floured Apron.  I would probably have never chosen this recipe to make, but I LOVED LOVED LOVED it!! This was my first time to make scones- of course.  They were fairly easy to make- I am always worried that I am blending too much and then not enough or handling the dough too much, etc.  I took most of these scones to work and got great reviews.  I patted the dough out into a square and cut the scones into little squares.  I will DEFINITELY make this again!!  
On the other hand, I made the mixed berry tart on Saturday night when some friends came over and my pastry creme needs A LOT of work- It was not very good at all, but my sweet friends ate it and said it was good :-)  

Oh, and Dorie EMAILED me this week- See the below post!!

Your scones are so nicely browned, I'm a little embarassed about my pale tops!

I totally agree about the whole trying new things part b/c before starting a blog, the only things I would even think about baking were chocolate chip cookies and banana bread.

I'm a little worried about next week's blueberry pie, since I've never made a pie crust before and a little afraid of all that butter!

Gorgeous scones. WOW! You got an email from Dorie! Lucky you! Do you feel any pressure to make every single baked good perfect just in case she comes back???? :)

Well, even if your pastry cream needs work, the scones look great! good job! (and a personal email, too. How exciting!)

Go visit Judy at Judy's Gross Eats, she gave me amazing tips on how to make perfect pastry cream - and you make it in one pan!

The scones look great, and how jealous are all of us that you got a response from Dorie?

These look great!! I think this was a great pick because it pushed so many of us to try things we normally wouldn't consider...it looks like you had great success with yours!! :-)

I'm so glad you liked these. I've never made scones before either, that's why I chose this recipe. I loved them too!

Your scones look fabulous! And the nice thing about a recipe needing work, is that you get to eat all those yummy creations while you try to perfect it.
