Reviews for Apple & Cheddar Mini Scones
"Apples, sage, cheddar, so addictive!"
"We loved them! I didn't make them mini since I wasn't feeding a crowd and they still turned out great. I served them with apple butter and sausage patties. Delicious."
"Oh my goodness! These are delicious! I hope to make them often! Thank you for sharingFive stars from me!"
"These are so good to make on a crisp fall morning. Highly recommended these!"
"I made these today for breakfast to go with my homemade apple butter. I did make a few changes, one thing that I always do is switch out half of the flour for whole wheat pastry flour. I also did not have vanilla yogurt so I used light sour cream and added 1 TB honey and 1 tsp of pure vanilla extract. They were very light and airy and just the right amount of savory and sweet."
"Rich and tender. I would use more sage next time. My kids ate them just fine."
