Ingredients
  • 2 cups flour
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 6 Tbsp cold butter, small dice
  • 1 granny smith apple, small dice
  • 1 heaping tsp cinnamon plus extra for sprinkling
  • egg wash {lightly beaten egg with a splash of water}
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Add the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt to a food processor with the dough blade. {you can also use a hand mixer}.
  3. Add in the cold butter and continue to mix until the butter becomes incorporated and the pieces are about the size of peas.
  4. Stir in the apples and cinnamon just to coat with the dry mixture.
  5. In a measuring cup mix together the buttermilk and egg. Pour into the dry ingredients and stir with a spoon until the dry ingredients are mostly incorporated.
  6. Pour the dough out onto a very lightly floured surface {too much flour will leave you with a heavy dense scone}. Gently press together to form into a round about 1½ inches high.
  7. Cut into 6 even triangles. Place onto a parchment lined baking sheet and brush with some of the egg wash. Sprinkle a little extra cinnamon on top.
  8. Bake for approx 22-24 minutes or until lightly golden.
