Apple Scones


This is a real nice dense dish that works just as well as a dessert as it does a breakfast pastry.  Trust me, one of these in the morning will definitely stick with you til lunch.  But, if you want it as a dessert I recommend slathering on some cheesecake filling or your favorite maple flavored icing.

Whisk together the dry ingredients to incorporate, then paddle the butter into the dry ingredients with a stand mixer until they resemble small peas.

Add the apples and mix until coated and well dispersed, then add all of the wet ingredients at once and mix until just combined.

Roll the dough out onto a well floured surface and push any loose pieces together into a large mass with your hands.

Press the dough down gently and begin rolling it out until it’s approximately 3/4 inch thick.

Cut the scones into desired shapes and sizes, brush with a little cream, melted butter, or egg wash.

Bake until golden.

Cool on a wire rack until room temperature, and enjoy!

If you’re doing this for dessert, I highly recommend spreading a nice healthy layer of cheesecake filling or your favorite maple flavored icing all over it first.
