Apple Scones!

Apple Scones!
They go perfectly with a hot cup of tea!

Here is what you need:

2 1/4 cups flour
1/4 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, chilled
1-3 apples(any type), peeled,cored & shredded
1/2 cup milk

In large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, soda, and salt. 
Then set the bowl aside and start peeling the apples.
Once peeled you can start grading!
Be sure to put your apple aside in a bowl!

Next you will want to cut in one stick of butter until crumbly.
Then add the shredded apples and milk. 
Stir until mixture resembles a soft dough ball. 
Next you will want to sprinkle a bit of flour onto a clean surface and then place your dough on it.
Then knead 8-10 times adding more flour(if needed) as you go along. 
Next you can either pat the dough into 2-6" circles or you roll the dough out and cut into diamonds like I did!
One your dough is cut out place them on a greased cookie sheet.
Then in a small bowl mix together cinnamon and sugar..
 A sprinkle it over your scones!
Then place in a 425* oven for 15mins or until brown!
Today I used mcintosh apples but if you like more of a tart taste try using granny smith apples! 
The scones will be super yummy then!

I hope you enjoy!

Till Next Time,
Kate
