Apple Cinnamon Scones just sound like autumn, right? I decided to give the can’t miss combination of apples and cinnamon a try in scone form. It worked beautifully and was a hit with my family. I encourage you to give it a try. It will make the house smell great and give you that “autumn is in the air” feeling!

This recipe uses fresh chopped apple. The scones will be moist. Store any leftover scones in the refrigerator to maintain freshness.

Ingredients:

2 cups flour

1 tsp cinnamon

1 TBSP baking powder

3 TBSP sugar

1/2 tsp salt

6 TBSP chilled butter

1/2 cup whole milk or half & half

1 egg

1 small sweet apple such as Gala or Fuji

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1 TBSP milk

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a large bowl mix flour, cinnamon, baking powder, sugar and salt.
  2. Cut in butter with a pastry blender until pieces are the size of peas or smaller.
  3. In a separate small bowl whisk together whole milk (or half & half) and egg.
  4. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the milk-egg mixture.
  5. Using a fork, blend the wet and dry ingredients together.
