These scones transport me back to when I was a kid and apples and peanut butter were one of my favorite snacks! But the cinnamon, turns it into one of my favorite adult snacks! They turned out perfectly, with a firm outside and a soft inside! They just melted in my mouth!

  • It's a peaceful night here in Houston and getting a lot of work done, so I can enjoy the rest of the weekend and not be so attached to my computer. I'm hoping to get some pool time in, running, yoga, coffee with a friend, dinner, wine, and maybe sleeping in, although that doesn't seem to happen anymore. ;) Hope you are doing well and enjoying the NJ heat wave!

  • Stumbling on your blog has been a blessing and hinderance- so many amazing recipes! This one is definitely for the books, although do reckon a chopped up apple may replace the apple chips? Or another alternative? Once again great recipes!

  • These look delicious!! I just tried once again to find almond flour here in Australia but couldn't find it. It's not the same as almond meal is it?
