Wow! These came out great... fluffy and not-too-sweet. HEADS UP--I needed to add about 1/4 cup less milk, or more flour, to given them a real scone-ish consistency. So quick and easy. I would recommend putting some spice into the batter, though, to liven them up... a cinnamon/ nutmeg/allspice combo worked great for me! Read More

I don't know what went wrong. I used a tasty granny smith apple, and added apple pie spice to the dough, but there was just no flavor. I won't be making these again. Bummer. Read More

These scones are wonderful. I added cinnamon to the dough as many of you have. Instead of apples I used peaches and it turned out just delicious. I will definitely make these again. Read More

These are pretty good. If you want them to bake up a little better use 2 cups of self-rising flour vs. all purpose, 1/4 c. of sugar, 1/2 tsp. of baking powder, 1 tsp. of cream of tartar, and 1/4 tsp. of salt. Freeze the butter and grate it on a cheese grater. I added 1/4 tsp. of nutgeg and 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon and vanilla. I always use half and half instead of milk. I used a red delicious apple and added 1/4 c. of raisins. These came out nice, but next time I might add two apples for more apple taste. Read More

I was hoping for the type of scone you find in coffee shops. The only reason why this fell short is because it has more of a cakey consistency. The apple was mild and it was not too sweet. Good warm with a little butter spread on top. Not hard to make! Read More

These were ok. The apple taste did not stand out so well and the apple I got was ripe. Perhaps I should have purchased a Granny Smith rather than a Fugi. I would make again as it isquick and good with some butter and jelly. Read More

Amazing scones. This is my first attempt at making them. I ended up changing the recipe a bit: doubling the sugar, adding 1/4 tsp. nutmeg and 1/2 tsp cinnamon, as Kristiegreen suggested. Also, I added 1/2 cup of applesauce and 1/2 cup more flour than the recipe call for, as the dough came out really sticky. However, they came out tasting sweet and rich and I'd make them again in a second! Read More
