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
