Apple Scone Dough
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 8 Tbsp butter, cold and cubed
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup cream, plus more for brushing
  • 3/4 cups finely diced apples
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 Tbsp milk
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Begin by heating the diced apples, butter, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar in a small saucepan over low-med heat. Allow the flavors to meld together by cooking for 5-8 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. While the apples are cooking, in the bowl of a mixer, mix flour, sugars, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Mix briefly. With the mixture on low, drop in the cubes of butter one at a time. When the mixture resembles coarse crumbles, pour in the egg and heavy cream only mixing until just combined.
  4. Pull the apples off the heat, and with a slotted spoon, spoon the apples into the dough. Mix until just combined.
  5. On a floured surface, turn out the dough and pat into a 1-inch thick circle. Cut the dough into eighths, place on a greased baking sheet, and bake for 17-18 minutes, or until golden brown.
  6. While cooking, in a small bowl, mix the powdered sugar, syrup, and milk (one Tbsp at a time) until it reaches your desired consistency. I usually use 1 Tbsp of milk.
  7. Allow the scones to cool for a couple of minutes and then pour on the icing.
  8. Enjoy!
