Apple Scones

Posted in Cakes and Cookies 0

Fall is here and with it the apple picking season. We went apple picking which means I have a lot of apples now, ready to be cooked, baked or simply eaten.
One of the easiest, least messy things to do with apples are fresh apple scones. There’s nothing like a hot, fresh scone along with a nice cup of tea on a cool fall evening.Here’s an easy to do recipe that’s a great success every single time. These scones are super yummy when served either warm with butter or cooled with a nice cup of tea or coffee.
Either way, it tastes like home! :)
