I made this and followed the directions and it was delicious. The second time I made it changed it up a bit. I added 1 teaspoon of apple pie spice (I will add more next time) and Instead of sprinkling the sugar on top I poured the sugar in a bowl and after brushing with milk I dunked the top the scone in the sugar for extra sweetness and crunch! It was delicious lots of flavor.

These are my favorite scones to make. They have such a unique yet amazing flavor; so fluffy and tender too. The savoriness of the cheese is so well complimented by the sage and sweet sugar. A family favorite!

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.

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.
