Variations on a Scone (Part 3) – Kayak’s Café (Skinker-DeBaliviere, St. Louis)

Now for something completely different…

Apple Sage Scone

While I initially approached this scone with utter apprehension, it is with joy that I report of the fine victory that this odd concoction has achieved.  Once again retaining splendid crunch and soft inners, this scone holds a fine balance between the bitterness of the sizable green sage leaves within the scone and the granulated sugar on top of it.  The apple taste is mild but enjoyable.  It should be noted that this is not a perfect scone, as the crust could be even crunchier and the inside is a tad dry.

Still, overall, this is an exceptional scone. Both original and highly tasty!
