apple cheddar scones

These are the last treats baked in the oven of my old apartment (sniff).  Karina of The Floured Apron has chosen Dorie’s Apple Cheddar Scones for TWD this week.  If it weren’t for the group, I probably wouldn’t have made this recipe.  Not that doesn’t sound good to me, it actually sounds quite good, but I just know I wouldn’t have gotten around to it.  I’m so glad I got the push I needed, because I thought they were fantastic!

Apples and cheddar cheese are a classic combination.  I used to think it was a southern thing…then I thought it was a New England thing.  I have no idea what kind of thing it is now, except for a good thing.  This recipe calls for dried apples, which hold their form well in the scones, and grated cheddar (I used white), which melts into the background.  The dried fruit and cheddar cheese, along with apple juice, make for a slightly sweet and salty combo that I love.  Cornmeal in the dough makes them bake up golden and gives them texture.  If I make them again, I’ll either scoop out the sticky dough in rounds or pat it out a bit fatter, but that’s purely for looks.  I served mine with a little honey butter on the side–tasty!

Sorry to keep this so short, but as I write this, I’m still in the midst of packing.  A big thanks to Karina for this week’s pick!  My internet connection may be down for several days due to the move, so I might not be able to check out the TWD blogroll myself this week, but you should!  And check out Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan or Karina’s post for the recipe for these Apple Cheddar Scones.
