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 🙂

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.

Strawberry Champagne Scone Bites

This was a flavor and idea that I have been thinking about for a while now! This was originally going to be a cookie, but with the texture because of the liquid from the strawberries and champagne (& baking soda), it ended up being more like a little scone. The flavor was pretty amazing and the texture really worked…we love them! They went from a cookie to a sconey like (not as hard as a scone) breakfast bite named by my amazing husband 🙂

Here is the recipe, I hope you give it a shot and enjoy them!

Strawberry Champagne Scone Bites

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup champagne ( I use Verdi, it is cheap and tastes really good!)

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

2 1/2 cups flour

2 cups finely chopped strawberries (after you chop them up, place them on a paper towel and try and get out as much juice as you can)

1. Cream butter and sugar

2. Add champagne and blend,  it will looked all curdled and gross but I promise it will be good!

3. Add the salt, powder, soda, and vanilla and mix

4. Add the flour and mix just enough that everything is all blended

5. Add the strawberries and mix a couple times so the strawberries are mixed in and your batter becomes a little sticky and has a slight pinkish tint

6. Drop spoon fulls of batter onto the cookie sheet, about an inch apart

7. Bake at 375° for 9 – 10 minutes, when they come out, place them on a cooling rack, give them a couple minutes and enjoy them warm (they are still good cool though too, just not as good the next day, so gobble them up!)

I hope you enjoy them!
