I love scones. They are so versatile, you can choose from sweet with variety of fruits or cheese ones and not to mention extremely easy. This time, I had plenty of granny smith apples. So this apple is going to be my baking project this week.
Always prefer to make a small batch so just used one and quarter cup of flour. With this recipe you could get 9 x 2.5 in scones, just sufficient for the small family.
Making scone is almost the same as baking pie or tart. This requires you to blend dry ingredients with cold butter using your finger tips until it resembles bread crumbs. The secret of good scones are not to handle the dough too much before baking. It should be sticky and not too dry. Dip your cutter in flour each time before cutting out the dough.
Despite containing no eggs in the recipe, the scones are well risen, feather light, soft and utterly delicious.
My family enjoyed them fresh from the oven without any preserves or butter but prefer to add one more apple next time I bake them.
