Cook Time
  • 2cups all purpose flourplus more for sprinkling
  • 2 1/2teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2teaspoon salt
  • 1/2cup cold butter
  • 1/2cup heavy cream
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2cup brown sugar
  • 1teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1cup peeled and chopped green apple(Granny Smith)
  • 1/2cup store bought caramel for drizzling(or homemade caramel sauce)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the all-purpose flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon, and salt together.
  3. Grate the cold butter with a box grater and scatter it over the flour mixture. Use a pastry cutter or two knives to cut the butter into the flour mixture until you get a crumbly mixture that resembles coarse sand.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk the heavy cream, egg, brown sugar, and vanilla extract together. Combine with the dry ingredients and stir together until a firm dough domes together. Gently fold in the chopped apple pieces until they are evenly distributed.
  5. Using floured hands, form the dough into a ball and transfer it to a floured surface. Flatten the dough into a 2-inch-thick disc and cut it into 8 even wedges (like you would slice a pizza). You can also cut out the dough into small circles if you prefer.
  6. Place the wedges at least 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 20 to 25 minutes until they are firm.
  7. Drizzle caramel over the scones just before serving.
