Apple Cinnamon Scones

Sift together dry ingredients:

  • 2 and 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Cut in:

  • 1/4 cup cold butter

Then add in:

  • 1 large apple peeled and grated
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup plain unsweetened yogurt (equivalent to 1 egg)

Mix until dough just comes together. You may need a bit more milk if its too dry. Form into a flat circle and cut into 6 scones. Brush the tops with cream and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

Bake 400 degrees F for approximately 15 minutes on a parchment lined baking sheet. Makes 6 large scones.
