What’s Cooking with Melissa?

I recently discovered that my granddaughter loves apple scones. I had never baked them before, so I decided to five them a try. I was surprised at how easy and GOOD they are! Hope you enjoy them.

Apple Scones

2 cups flour (gluten free 1 to 1 flour works great too)

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/4 cup sugar (I use raw sugar)

1/2 cup butter, cold and cut into cubes

1 egg

1/3 cip plain yogurt

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

2 apples, peeled, cored and diced 

cinnamon/sugar to sprinkle on top (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside. In a large bowl, mix together flour, cinnamon, sugar and baking soda. Add the butter and mix together with clean hands until dough is crumbly. In a separate bowl mix egg, yogurt and vanilla together. Fold wet ingredients into butter/dry ingredients. Do not over mix. Gently fold in diced apples just until dough is holds together. Turn dough onto parchment covered cookie sheet. Use floured hands to form dough into a circle about 9 inches round and 1/2 inch thick. Cut into 8 triangle pieces (like a pizza). Separate pieces slightly. Sprinkle scones with cinnamon/sugar. Bake 20-25 minutes or until light golden brown. Completely cool before serving.

*Serve with butter, jam or lemon curd.
