Apple Cinnamon Scones

So, for the second half of scone day, I decided on apple cinnamon.  Here it is!

Apple Cinnamon Scones


4 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar (white)
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
12 tbsp butter
2 large apples, peeled, cored and chopped
1 cup milk, 1 tbsp milk
2 tbsp sugar crystals
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375 and grease a baking sheet.  Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon in a large bowl.  Cut in your butter, either with a fork or your fingers until it is evenly distributed.  Add apple chunks.

Flour mixture + apple chunks

Stir in milk.  Mix gently until a soft dough forms. 

With my other scones, I formed a circle and cut it into slices to form the scones.  For these, I simply formed balls of dough into flattened circles on the cookie sheet, because the dough was a bit stickier. 

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until lightly browned.
