Apple Scones


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter, chilled
  • 1 apple, peeled, cored & shredded
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Cooking Instructions

Step 1: Measure flour, sugar, baking powder, soda, and salt into a large bowl.  Cut in butter or margarine until crumbly.  Add shredded apple and 1/2 cup milk.  Stir to form a soft dough.

Step 2: Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface.  Knead gently 8 to 10 times.  Pat into two 6-inch circles.  Place on greased baking sheet.  Brush tops with remaining milk, and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.  Score each into 6 pie-shaped wedges.

Step 3: Bake at 425 degrees F for 15 minutes, or until browned and risen.  Serve warm with butter.
