Apple Cheddar Scones (Tuesdays with Dorie)
Apple Cheddar Scones

For this week's Tuesdays with Dorie challenge, Karina of The Floured Apron picked this delicious choice.

Why do I love Tuesdays with Dorie? Because I'm going to make everything in the book...even ones that I would passed up had I been on my own! (Sorry, Dorie, no offense...but apple and cheddar just didn't call out to me). But I was sooooooo wrong.

The cross-section. Light and, um, bumping with butter.

I used mild cheddar cheese and dried granny smith apples from Trader Joe's.

The dough comes out really sticky. Dorie warns you about that and suggests lots of flour...or to just scoop out the scones. I chose the latter and it was super-duper easy. I got 20 scones out of my smallish ice cream scoop. (I bought the scoop at Surfas and think it is either a #1 or #10...there is a "one" in the number)

Fresh from the oven... my first baked good made with cheese!

I would love to try this recipe with a savory herb such as rosemary.

I thought these were terrific, too, and would have passed them up but for TWD! I love the look of yours - neat and round. This would be a great way to serve them for entertaining.

I was also skeptical of cheese in a baked good, but isn't it nice to be wrong? Lovely scones.

I was skeptical, too! But I'm glad we've all seen the light! haha! Nice work!

I too have seen the light. I agree, though, a little rosemary in these scones would be fantastic!

Mara - Yes, that is C&B. Gosh, I could buy that entire store if I had the means. I don't eat cheese my selection wasn't based on flavor - the mild cheddar was the cheapest cheddar at Trader Joe's!

Great idea to use the scoop - wish I had thought of that!!

I love the small scones! I definitely think scooping was the way to go with these. I have great sources for ingredients around here, but I still miss Trader Joes.

Perfectly little rounded scones... the most even I've seen, surely just as good as their appearence!
Great job!

The great pictures aren't a suprise for me, but it's great to see them in your entry.

Those are so pretty, thanks to the ice cream scoop. I'm glad you ended up liking these so much.

What a clever idea to use the scoop. Those look great!

The ice cream scoop was genius. These have to be the most uniform scones of the bunch.

I totally agree with you about TWD forcing you to try things you normally wouldn't.

Yours are soooo nice! Great pictures, I really like the first one.

Nice domed scones! I'll have to try the scooper method sometime.

Your scones look fabulous! I'll have to do a better job of packing my scoop next time. I think some fresh herbs and bacon would work great in this recipe!
