Apple Scones

Old man winter is definitely knocking on the doors here in SW Ohio. Friday, it was in the mid 60's. Today, crisp cold air is whipping in the door every time the dog decides to go outside. The smell of burning wood is filling the air. What is the perfect thing for a day like today? Nice hot apple scones!

Audrey has been asking for apple scones for a few days now. With the sudden dip in the temperature it seemed perfect for a Sunday treat. She did most of the work herself and they were delicious!

Apple Scones
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter, chilled
1 apple - peeled, cored and shredded
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons white sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  1. Measure flour, sugar, baking powder, soda, and salt into a large bowl. Cut in butter or margarine until crumbly. Add shredded apple and milk. Stir to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently 8 to 10 times. Pat into two 6-inch circles. Place on greased baking sheet. Brush tops with milk, and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Score each into 6 pie-shaped wedges.
  3. Bake at 425 degrees F (220 degrees C) for 15 minutes, or until browned and risen. Serve warm with butter. (This recipe makes two 6" circles)
