How to Make Easy Apple Scones Recipe
To prepare delicious apple scones first heat the oven to 230°C (210°C fan) gas 8.
Place an ungreased baking sheet in the oven to heat up.
Sift the flour and baking powder with a pinch of salt and add 2 tbs sugar.
Tip in the butter and rub together with your fingertips, until the mixture forms crumbs.
Add the apple and stir it to coat in the flour mixture.
Gradually pour in the egg and milk and bring the mixture together with your hands to make a soft manageable dough.
Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface until it is 2 cm thick.
Use a 5 cm cutter to stamp out 8 rounds.
Use a palette knife to lift the apple scones onto the preheated baking sheet, brush with milk and sprinkle with sugar.
Bake for 8-10 minutes until well risen, firm and pale golden.
Cool the apple scones on a wire rack and serve.
