Hot Apple Scones coming right up!

I just had some pretty awesome masala dosas at Muyuri and they totally satisfied my Indian fix. They were so simple too, a giant 2 feet long crepe with potatoes peas and carrots and lots of yummy spices. Ours was served with coconut chutney and ginger chutney. I am one really happy person right now so excuse my food rantings. I realized this evening I had alot of apples leftover from holiday baking and just before I thought about making an apple pie, I thought, why not make something different, like a scone? So here’s my question: have you ever had a fresh out of the oven scone with a spread ofย  butter? No you say? My friends you have not lived if you haven’t had a hot scone. If you’ve got some leftover Granny Smith apples, consider doing something different for a change. These are best served warm with a hot cup of Twinning’s Lady Grey tea.

You’ll need:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoons 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 large sugar granules
  • 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  1. In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl. Cut in the butter and mix until crumbly. Add shredded apple and milk. Stir to form soft dough.
  2. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead gently 8 to 10 times. Form onto a giant 6 inch disk. Place onto baking sheet. Brush top with 2 tablespoons milk and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
  3. Bake at 425 for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown and risen. Serve warm with butter and tea!
