I love fall. From apples to pumpkins and everything in between. He feeling. The smells. These apple cinnamon scones are a great way to kick off the start of fall. They are a perfect breakfast with a side of hot tea.
Give these a try to get that fall feeling too!
– 2 cups flour
– 2/3 cup rolled oats
– 1 Tablespoon baking powder
– 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
– 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
– 1/4 teaspoon salt
– 1 apple chopped
– 1/2 cup butter (cold)
– 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
– 1/2 cup milk
– 1/4 cup honey
– Turbino sugar for sprinkles
Step 1: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Step 2: In a large bowl, combine the flour, rolled oats, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and nutmeg. Chop in cold butter with a knife.
Step 3: In another smaller bowl combine together the milk, honey and apple. Add this to the dry ingredients and toss together until just mixed.
Step 4: Place dough on a floured work surface and knead gently until everything is well combined. Form the dough into a circle that’s about 9 to 10 inches in diameter and about 1/2 inch in thickness. Place the dough onto the prepared baking sheet. Cut into 8 wedges and separate the wedges so that they are about 1 inch apart. Brush the wedges with the milk and top with Turbinado sugar.
Step 5: Bake for about 20 minutes or until nice and golden brown.
