Apple Cinnamon Scones

This is a approved2

Recipe, that I actually found, and made prior to these little kiddos being born. I made these one Sunday morning while pregnant and A & I LOVED them. I hate that I find so many recipes on Pinterest try them and rarely make them again. BUT this one is a keeper and I HOPE to make them again soon (you know when I have FREE time hahaha). And there are just so many more recipes on Pinterest to try when I do have that time so we will have to pick and choose đŸ™‚

Apple Cinnamon Scones 

Apple Cinnamon Scones
INGREDIENTS:
2 cups All Purpose Flour
1/4 cup Sugar
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg
1/2 teaspoons Baking Soda
1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
1 stick {8 tablespoons} Chilled Unsalted Butter
2 Apples peeled and chopped (they called for shredded but I like apple chunks in mine)
1/4 to 1/2 cup Whole Milk, plus more for brushing
1 tablespoon Sugar, for sprinkling
DIRECTIONS:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
In a large bowl combine the first 7 ingredients. Then cube up the chilled butter and add to the flour mixture. With a fork, blend the butter and the flour together until small crumbles form. Add in the apples, stir. Gradually add the whole milk, stirring until the dough forms.
On a lightly floured surface knead the dough 8-10 times before forming into a rectangle. Cut eight wedges and place on prepared pan. Brush with a little milk and sprinkle with sugar.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden.

Caramel Apple Salad

Here is a dessert that is one of my Fall favorites!!! Can you believe Fall is just about here, which means my babies are just about here (Ahhh so exciting!!!)!!! This is my absolutely favorite season! With beautiful weather and wearing my hoodies with flip flops and jeans and being comfy…YES!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE!

Anyway, I made this dessert tons of times last fall and a couple weeks ago when we were with family I made this dessert and everyone LOVED IT!! I promise you this is a winner and you should definitely give it a shot!

All that time ago I found the recipe here, so go and check it out!

I promised you pictures so I took some, even though they aren’t very good, don’t be discouraged it tastes much better than my pictures portray (and I promise it isn’t pictures of potato salad, this is the comment I heard tons of times while making it…”It looks like Potato Salad” I promise you it isn’t hahaha)!!!
