    1. Measure flour, sugar, baking powder, soda, and salt into a large bowl. Cut in butter or margarine until crumbly. Add shredded apple and milk. Stir to form a soft dough.
    2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently 8 to 10 times. Pat into two 6-inch circles. Place on greased baking sheet. Brush tops with milk, and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Score each into 6 pie-shaped wedges.
    3. Bake at 425 degrees F (220 degrees C) for 15 minutes, or until browned and risen. Serve warm with butter.

    Wow! These came out great... fluffy and not-too-sweet. HEADS UP--I needed to add about 1/4 cup less milk, or more flour, to given them a real scone-ish consistency. So quick and easy. I would recommend putting some spice into the batter, though, to liven them up... a cinnamon/ nutmeg/allspice combo worked great for me!  -  17 Apr 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These scones are wonderful. I added cinnamon to the dough as many of you have. Instead of apples I used peaches and it turned out just delicious. I will definitely make these again.  -  02 Jun 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    i was quite pleased with this formula. the recipe was clear and the end product disappeared before i could even officially serve it. no more Starbucks scones for this one!  -  26 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
