Apple Scones

Have you ever sat down and tried to write up 15+ posts in one day? It's kind of crazy. I have a hard time thinking of what to write for one post most of the time, let alone multiple posts. I am definately a better cook/baker than I am a writer!

But, I am way backed up on posts and my draft folder is overflowing. If I wait until after the move to get these posts up, I may forget what is what. So, here I am, trying to get as many drafts scheduled for posting as I can.

What does that mean for you? A lot of yummy recipes with VERY minimal writing. I hope you can forgive me! ;)

These scones were fantastic and I loved the bits of apple in them. So moist and yummy. Granted, I have yet to meet a scone that I didn't like!


Apple Scones

Recipe from Living Tastefully

• 1 1/4 cups flour

• 4 tablespoons brown sugar, divided

• 1/4 teaspoon salt

• 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

• 1 teaspoon baking powder

• 1/4 cup unsalted butter

• 1/4 cup sour cream

• 1 egg

• 1 cup finely diced apples

• 1 tablespoon sour cream

• 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

In the bowl of a food processor, combine flour, 3 tablespoons brown sugar, salt, soda and baking powder. Process briefly. Cube cold butter and add to the flour mixture. Pulse until the butter resembles peas.

In a large bowl, combine 1/4 cup sour cream and egg and mix until blended. Stir in diced apples. Add the flour mixture and stir until combined. Gather the dough together into a ball in the bowl, and with floured hands, knead lightly 5 times.

Divide the dough in half and place on a baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper or Silpat. With floured hands, press each into a disc about 5-inches in diameter. Using a floured knife, cut each disc into four wedges and separate the wedges slightly.

Brush top of dough with remaining 1 tablespoon sour cream. Sprinkle with mixture of remaining 1 tablespoon brown sugar and cinnamon.

Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes, or until done.

I stink, I STILL have that dough I made from June in the freezer. The only reason I know its from June is because it was the last week of school that I made it. :(Which means I still haven't made or tasted scones.

These looks especially good with the cinnamon sugar sprinkled on top.
