This is my first tuesdays with dorie challenge, and to be completely honest, when I saw what the recipe was, I was a little nervous, to say the least.
I've made scones in the past before, but they were always either plain, or had some type of currant, or raisin in them( cause my dad's not the biggest fan of sweets, when it comes to scones)...but nevertheless, I was still very intrigued to see what putting dried apples, and chedder cheese in a breakfast scone. Pretty savory if you ask me!
...But come on, anything Dorie's got in that little amazing book of hers has to be great anyways.
So starts my great adventure of these Apple Chedder Scones.
These weren't all that hard to bake, surprisingly, although, I do really need to work on my "scone shape",(says my mom)...the recipe said to pat the dough out into a 1/2 inch rectangle shape, and you should get 12 equal parts. Well, I guess I shaped it wrong, cause I got 10 scones, which I just cut in half, and made them a little smaller.
With the shapes being totally off, these really did come out great, I served them with some butter, and apricot jam, and they were GRRRRREAT!
They were soft, light, and chewy, without being TOO dry and crumbly like a regular scone could be. My parents, who LOVE scones for breakfast completely ate these up! And said they really really loved these.
My dad also commented that he'd be taking the rest of them to work with him the next morning for breakfast.
I love when my family enjoys what I bake, it makes me feel a sense of accomplishment, and that's truly a great feeling.
I highly suggest making these. You will not be disappointed I guarantee!
By the way, thanks TWD for letting me be apart of this whole thing!
I really appreciate it!! =]]
