Cinnamon Apple Scones
Source of Recipe
Adapted from the Foster's Market scones, this recipe gives you 8 very cinnamon-y scones.
List of Ingredients
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (290 grams )
1/4 cup sugar (50 grams)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt, plus an extra pinch
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2/3 cup finely chopped, peeled Granny Smith apple
12 tablespoons cold unsalted butter (144 grams)
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons buttermilk plus more buttermilk if needed
1-2 tablespoons of heavy cream for brushing tops
2 teaspoons cinnamon sugar (mix 2 teaspoons sugar with a pinch of cinnamon)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Have ready a large heavy duty baking sheet lined with nonstick foil or parchment.
Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and ground cinnamon in food processor and pulse to mix.
Add the butter and pulse until coarse and crumbly, then add the chopped apple and pulse until coarse. Add the buttermilk 2 tablespoons at a time and pulse until just combined and the dough begins to stick together. Add a tiny bit more buttermilk only if mixture seems very dry.
Empty the crumbly mixture onto a floured surface. Shape into a 6 1/2 inch round.
Using a buttered chef's knife, cut round into 8 triangles.
Brush tops of scones with a little heavy cream and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar if desired.
Bake 25 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for about 10 minutes before serving.
