Frosted Apple Scones
adapted from Source

2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup butter, cold cut into pieces
1 cup apple, shredded (1 medium) I did not peel the apple
1/2 cup milk plus a little more for brushing tops
sprinkling sugar (optional)

Stir together following ingredients for Frosting
1 cup confectioner's sugar
pinch salt
1 Tbs milk or cream (more or less depending consistency desired)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, allspice and cinnamon in large bowl until all dry ingredients are well distributed. Cut in butter.

Stir in apple and milk folding gently until soft dough. The dough will be very dry and you will want to add more milk.  But just fold slowly and gently and the flour will moisten.

Turn out onto lightly floured board; knead gently 8 to 10 times. Pat into two 6-inch circles. Cut into six pie-shaped wedges.

Place on greased (I use a silpat baking mat) baking sheet. Brush tops lightly with milk; sprinkle with sugar, if desired.

Bake for 15 minutes or until brown brown and risen.

Remove to rack and allow to cool slightly before frosting.
12 scones

Apple scones sound perfect for September! I'm starting to get into an apple mood now that fall is just a couple weeks away. I've never tried a French press but from the comment above I think I need to try one!

Gypsy Heart said...

Oh my word, these look and sound delish! I've tried a lot of scones but never apple so I can't wait to try them. Thanks so much for sharing!

I've never used a French press...do you have any suggestions?
