The texture on these scones was good; soft and a little chewy. Next time I think i will use Baking powder instead of the cream of tartar which has a taste that I don't care for.

This recipe was a waste of ingredients. horrible scones even worse cookies. Like rubber balls with hard crunchy outsides. Nice flavor but horrid texture.

My family loves this recipe, but I make a full-fat version by cutting in 4 T. butter instead of the applesauce. When my husband takes these to work, I get a lot of requests for the recipe.

I just made a 1/2 batch because I wasn't sure how they would go over. My husband just said they were amazing & he wished I'd made more. They were not rubbery at all - they came out brown and crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. I cooked for only 13 minutes. Be sure to only use the top rack so the bottoms won't burn.

Quick and delicious. I didn't have cream of tartar, so I substituted 2 tsp of baking powder and eliminated the baking soda. I would also use a little less than a cup of chocolate chips next time, as it felt like there were too many for the amount of dough.

very yummy, a bit of a mixture between cookies and scones, and the dough is scrummy to eat as well

For a no-butter recipe, these were great! I added a scant tsp of almond extract, which gave them a slightly sweet flavor and made the house smell great. I also baked them for only 10-11 minutes, as someone suggested and they turned out well. They were good enough and easy enough that I actually made a second batch the next day so that I'd have some in the freezer. Thanks GODGIFU for this recipe!
