apple scones

Its been about a week since I've baked anything sweet, and I was going through withdrawls. I havent been shopping this week, so the only fruit I had on hand were some bananas and a green apple. I bake alot with bananas and I wanted something different so I knew I had to do something with the apple.
But what could I bake with jsut one apple??
Cinnamon Apple Scones of course! With one apple I could get 12 delicious, moist scones!
These were great!

Cinnamon Apple Scones:
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 + 1/8c sugar ( i add the extra sugar to cut some of the baking powderish salty-ness)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup cold butter, chopped in small cubes
  • 1/2 c milk
  • 1 tsp cinnamon ( I always add more)
  • 1 green apple, peeled, cored, and diced

  1. Mix dry ingredients, then cut in butter till mixture is crumby.
  2. Add milk and apple and stir until you have a moist dough.
  3. knead gently and separate the dough in two parts. On a greased baking sheet, pat the dough into circles.
  4. Cut each circle into six parts.
  5. Brush the tops with milk and sprinkle on extra cinnamon and sugar


  1. Baking instructions would have been helpful.

  2. Yummy .
    This is truly amazing I like the work that you have done.
