Tuesdays with Dorie: Apple Cheddar Scones (Stupid British Snack Food!)

When I think of scones, I think of a Friends episode that happened as Ross was going through his divorce with Emily, who was British. If you remember, Ross said the wrong name at their wedding, and even though they went through with the ceremony, Emily ran off afterwards and refused to speak to Ross because she was so humiliated. They ended up deciding to get a divorce and Ross was so stressed out over the whole situation that he walked into Central Perk one afternoon and took Joey’s scone. He put it one the table, pounded it with his fist, yelling “Stupid British snack food!” I thought it was hilarious that he took his anger out on that scone! So now that’s my association with scones­čÖé

When I saw that Katrina of The Floured Apron chose the Apple Cheddar Scones this week, I will admit I was not too excited, as I don’t really eat scones all that much. I thought about skipping this week, but I kept thinking about them and reading about the other TWD members’ reactions to the scones. Everyone seemed to really like them, especially the cheddar flavor. So I decided to make them, being the dedicated TWD member that I am­čÖé I am sure glad that I did! I really liked these. After just a few minutes in the oven, my kitchen smelled wonderful. I knew then that they would be good. They kind of reminded me of a cheddar biscuit, but the texture was a little different, because they weren’t flaky like a biscuit. The apples also were a nice addition and were a great combination with the cheddar. I’m glad I was open to making these because now I’m looking forward to trying some more of Dorie’s scone recipes. Thanks Katrina for the pick this week and check out our Tuesdays with Dorie blog to see everyone else’s Apple Cheddar Scones!
