Flavors of fall fill apple cheddar scones.
I was settling sweetly into fall, having allowed those feelings of rush rush rush pass me by when I suddenly realized: My apples were going “off.” This means all those apples I had gathered from beneath the trees just a few weeks ago were beginning to look a little wrinkly and soft. Oops. So much for my reverie.
It’s good practice to buy fresh produce but that actually requires doing something with this produce. And I sometimes don’t follow through. (I am ashamed to admit to how many bell peppers I have tossed out recently.) I needed to snap awake before the apples were for naught.
Through the haze, I noticed my friend Jenny on Facebook crowing over an apple cheddar scone recipe she had found on Smitten Kitchen. (By the way, Jenny is doing something magnificent with Young Adult literature at 60secondrecap.com. Check it out!)
Anyway, I just found this to be the perfect answer since I adore this scone recipe taught to me by an English baker and had yet to try making savory scones. Urgency replaced my opiate state and I skipped swim practice in order to make a batch and keep the bad apples from ruining the whole lot (you knew I’d work that in somehow, right?).
Since one can’t make a proper meal of only scones I cooked up some applesauce and found the pair to be a fine autumn light supper. Don’t judge.
It was so delicious, I had it again for breakfast.
