Apple Cinnamon Scones


I love scones, so it's only natural that I would want to come up with a recipe that tastes and smells of "fall", my favorite season of the year. 

2 cups flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sliced apples
1/2 cup half and half
1 egg, beaten

Topping:
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup chopped pecans
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a medium bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Cut in butter until mixture becomes crumbly. Stir in apples. Making a whole in the center of the mixture, add cream and egg. Mix together with a fork until mixture forms a ball. Place on a lightly floured surface and pat into an 8-inch circle. Slice into 8 triangles and place in greased scone pan or on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. 

In small bowl, combine brown sugar, chopped pecans, and cinnamon. Sprinkle over scones and press sugar gently into dough. Bake for 15-17 minutes until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes and serve warm with coffee or tea. Enjoy!
