APPLE PIE SCONES
*makes 8-12 scones
*an original recipe created by Mary Grace
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 cup cold butter, cut into small cubes
1 apple, peeled, cored and chopped
1 cup whipping cream
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 425F.
In a medium bowl stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg using a fork or whisk.
Add cold butter and cut into the flour mixture using a pastry cutter or two knives. Combine until mixture is crumbly in texture.
Stir in chopped apple.
Add vanilla to the measured cream and stir all into flour mixture using a fork, until dough begins to form.
Gather up dough with a rubber spatula or your hands and form a ball, then knead a few times.
Place dough on baking stone or tray and pat down to form a circle about an inch and a half smaller than your stone.
Cut dough across into 8-12 triangles. Separate pieces out from each other a bit.
Bake on lowest rack if using a stone, for 15-17 minutes, or until golden.
Remove from oven, and let cool while you prepare icing, if using.
To prepare icing, in a small bowl or cup, using a small fork or whisk, mix together 1/3 cup icing sugar with 1 tbsp milk and 1/2 tsp lemon juice (add more icing sugar if too runny)
Drizzle over scones while still on baking stone or sheet, let cool a few more minutes.
Enjoy and happy Thanksgiving to all my canadian friends!
