Directions:

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!
