Apple Scones

moodyfoody's picture
Apple Scones are good all year long, but better in the fall, cliff-side or no, wherever you can find Granny Smith apples. My best recipes.
Ingredients
  Butter 4 Tablespoon, cold (1/4 Cup, Or ½ Stick)
  All purpose flour 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Wheat germ 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Sugar 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Cinnamon 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Baking powder 1 Tablespoon
  Baking soda 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Eggs 2 (1 For Glazing)
  Buttermilk 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Granny smith apple 1 , cut into ½-inch cubes (Peeled, About 1 Cup)
Directions

Cut the butter into small (1/4-inch) chunks, rewrap it in the paper, and return it to the refrigerator.

Combine the dry ingredients. Beat 1 egg and combine it with the buttermilk. Thread the butter though the dry ingredients with thumb and fingers, getting it to a gravelly texture.

Comb the buttermilk-egg mixture into the butter-flour "gravel" then add the apple cubes, blending through the batter just enough to be able to make two equal sized balls.

Flatten the balls to 2 disks 5 to 6 inches in diameter. Now "pizza-slice' each disk into four sections. Put the scones on an ungreased cookie sheet. Beat the second egg and brush it on the scones as a glaze.

Bake for 20 minutes, until golden brown.

I agree, apple recipes taste good in the fall. I always go to pick my apples fresh from an orchard.

I like the addition of wheat germ in this one, making it a little more healthy. Helps compensate for the butter.
