So, so good. So good that I drizzled a little more honey on my plate and dipped the warm scone into it, feeling much like a hungry Winnie the Pooh.
Honey drizzled apple scones
This makes 8 scones.
Preheat oven to 360F.
Line a jellyroll/cookie sheet with clean foil or parchment.
1 large Granny Smith apple, peeled and chopped, about 1 heaping cup
1 T. cinnamon sugar (I mix my own to taste) sprinkled on the apples
Toss the apples a little and set aside.
2 cups King Arthur flour
1 stick (4 ounces) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1 t. cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
3/4ths cup buttermilk plus more as needed
(you don't want the dough to be too wet, so add more
buttermilk tablespoon by tablespoon if needed)
Put the flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, salt, and butter pieces in mixer bowl. Mix well, making sure the butter is incorporated, though a few bits and flakes of butter are fine.
Add the cinnamon sugar-apple mixture to the flour mix and mix briefly.
Add the buttermilk and mix quickly. If it's too dry, add a tablespoon or two more buttermilk until it forms a ball.
Remove dough to a floured surface and pat into a circle.
Cut the circle into 8 pieces and place triangles on baking sheet.
Drizzle honey generously on the tops of the scones.
Bake for 25 minutes, cool briefly, then remove and cool further on a rack.
They tend to stick because of the honey so remove carefully.
