This week, Karina of The Floured Apron chose Apple Cheddar Scones. I was thrilled because I love apple and cheddar paired together! I also was able to double duty these, because I had them for breakfast Sunday during the race in New Hampshire. When I was younger, my family would go apple picking in New England, and apples and apple cider remind me of those days!
The recipe called for apple cider, but it's not on sale right now, so I used Simply Apple. It's not exactly cider, but it is much more flavorful than apple juice. I found dried apples in the bulk bin at our local co-op health food store. I also used 4 tbsp. of light butter instead of 8 tbsp. of regular, you can find the recipe over at Karina's blog if you'd like to see!
I really enjoyed these scones, and I will for sure make them again!
