apple cinnamon scones October 15, 2011

To be honest, these might not technically be scones, because of the whole rolling thing, but the dough is a basic biscuit dough like one uses for scones, so that’s what I’m calling this creation I came up with this evening.

The crust is very flaky and flavourful.  I cannot make pie crust to save my life, but no one will complain if I make this instead!

Pre-heat oven to 400F.  Serves 8, or two with left-overs!  ;-P

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dice one tart cooking apple (I used an Ambrosia) into approx 1/4″ cubes (or you could grate it instead), toss with 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tbsp Demarara or brown sugar, 1 tbsp melted butter.

In another bowl, mix 2 c flour, 1 tbsp white sugar, 1.5 tsp baking power, 1 tsp salt. Cut in 1/4 c butter with pastry blender. Add in 1 c milk.  Mix well.

Turn out onto counter, Roll into a 12″ square. Spread apple filling onto dough, leaving 1′ border. Roll up. Squish down, keeping filling in! So it’s about 1″ high. Cut into 2 scones, each about 4″ X 6″.

Bake for 25 mins 400 F.

Melt 1 tbsp of butter. Brush scones with butter, sprinkle with a thin coating of icing sugar and cinnamon. Replace in the oven and bake for 4-5 more minutes.

To serve, slice each scone into 4 slices and serve with whipped cream or ice cream along the side.

SOOOOO yummy!

  1. Sounds amazing! And just imagine, me with 30 lbs of apples from the neighbours tree…. the apples are delicious but the kids aren’t biting. Could it be that they have been spoiled by the “pretty” apples that one picks from a store shelf? You know the ones… not a blemish, hole or spot to be seen! They have no idea what they are missing!! So far, apple pies, cinnamon apple oatmeal and apple crisp. Next? Shawns Scones!
    Oh, the secret ingredient to a successful pie crust? Vinegar. If you wish, I will happily share my moms never-fail pastry recipe with you.

  2. These look really, really delicious.
