Another Tuesday Treat...

mmm...tempting!

Finally, another Tuesdays with Dorie post. It's been awhile because I was away for a wedding, on a cruise, etc. This week's pick was from Karina of The Floured Apron (cute blog name, huh?)...drum roll please...Apple Cheddar Scones. You can check out the recipe over at her blog. The thought of making scones has always intimidated me, but these were really quite easy...that was a plus. I was expecting something a little sweeter with more flavor, but I felt these were more 'savory' than sweet and neither the apples or the cheddar were a strong flavor. They were good, don't get me wrong, but they were definitely something I might eat alongside dinner...not necessarily a stand-alone snack or breakfast. It's just my opinion...don't shoot me, ok? For some of the opinions and entries of other TWD bakers, just click here. I did give this a 'breakfast' label because Dorie does have this recipe under that heading in her cookbook....and afterall, people, she is the professional.

Oh, we never shoot anyone for opinions...at least I don't think we do...LOL.

Your scones look perfectly delicious and they are welcome to come here and stand alone anytime.

Sounds like you have been having a wonderful summer!

A cruise, huh? Lucky you! I agree though, these are very good as a savory addition to dinner.

Wedding and cruises are great reasons to get out of the kitchen and enjoy life! Scones would be yummy with a savory dinner-maybe some honey ham with a mustard glaze...

I agree that these are a great addition to dinner. I picture eating them with beef stew or soup in the winter. Good job!

I would have thought it would have tasted more sweet than savory! Nonetheless, it looks great :)
