Tuesdays With Dorie: Apple Cheddar Scones

This week's recipe was an easy sell, we are a scone- loving household. I've tried making scones a few times, but in my laziness, I've never given them a fair shot, and the results have generally been less than spectacular.

This scone, however, made everybody happy.

My husband has a weekly male bonding time at a local coffee shop, I sent these along and have been receiving rave reviews ever since.

This was one of the first Dorie recipes that I followed nearly to the letter (subbing yogurt for buttermilk), and the results were amazing. Maybe I should just let Dorie do the work in the future, and stop trying to tweak every recipe. There's a reason she has us all blogging her recipes every week!

I would encourage everyone to try out this recipe, it's simple and delicious. Be sure to check out all the other fabulous blogs who take part in the weekly Tuesdays with Dorie posting. This event is hosted by Laurie of Quirky Cupcake, and this week's recipe was chosen by Karina of The Floured Apron.

I love being able to see all the cheese in there - I'm glad these were a hit for the guys!

Ooh, bringing scones to a coffee shop? Sneaky! I love it. It's so worth it to make scones at home and not just because they'll probably be better, but because they're one of those things that you'll pay up the wazzoo for at a coffee shop. Glad everyone liked them, they look big and yummy.

I do the same thing as far as tweaking but am always pleased when I just follow the recipe. I am glad these were a hit for you.

I thought these were so tasty and the only change I'd make is cutting my apple pieces a bit bigger for more texture.

I know what you mean - I have a tendency to tweak ever recipe! So glad that these turned out well for you.
