TWD: Apple Cheddar Scones


Since I seem to be the Queen of destroying all things biscuits and scones, I didn't have high hopes for this week's recipe, Apple Cheddar Scones (chosen by Karina of The Floured Apron). I am fairly certain I over mix/beat the batter, and end up with something resembling a hockey puck, only moderately better tasting. But, I am in this group to bake, so bake I did!

I know better than to plan on being able to bring edible scones to work, so I cut the recipe down to make 3 scones. When I was getting ready to form them, I caught my mini muffin tin out of the corner of my eye... and voila! Mini muffin scones were born. These came out a little dry for me, probably over baked and without enough liquid in the batter. I didn't get much apple flavor from them, and think they'd be great taken in a different direction... jalapenos, perhaps? All considered, they were my best biscuit/scone attempt, yet... so maybe there is hope for the QODATBAS?

I almost used my regular muffin pan but had already stopped scooping when I thought of it. The mini ones are really cute, maybe I'll try that next time.
