Apple Scone Recipe

You will find many scone recipes on my site, they are a breakfast favorite. My husband eats them with peanut butter, my son with butter and my daughter with jam. They are a nice substitution for toast when you have a moment to whip something homemade up for breakfast or lunch. My pictures aren’t the best because they were in the early morning sun (yeesh up at 7 and baking that morning!) but you get the idea!

Ingredients needed for Apple Scone Recipe:

Flour 2 cups

sugar 1/3  cup

baking powder 2 tsp

baking soda 1/2 tsp

cinnamon 1 tsp

1/4 cup of cold butter or margarine

1 cup of shredded apple

1/2 cup of milk

sugar and cinnamon for sprinkling if desired

Pre-heat your oven to  425 degrees. Combine all of your dry ingredients, and mix them together well. If you like spicier scones, add another 1/2 tsp cinnamon, or better yet, some nutmeg or cloves.

1

Cut in the 1/4 cup or margarine or butter.

2

Shred your apple.

3

Add the shredded apple, then the milk and mix until they form a soft dough. Add a bit of flour if the dough is too sticky, it really depends on how moist your shredded apple is.

Knead a few times, working some extra flour into it until it is barely sticky. Divide into two balls of dough.

Flatten until they are two circles that are about 6 inches in diameter. If you like, scour lines on the top to divide them into 6 pieces.
