Apple Cinnamon Scones.

On a grey drizzly cold November day needed a little treat to warm me up. Something yummy to go with a cup of tea. Decided to try again to make a light fluffy scone....Had some spy apples to use up. Love cinnamon. Found a recipe at Foodland Ontario..adjusted it to suit me , left out the walnuts tho they would be good just did not have them in the cupboard, added more cinnamon..

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tbsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup cold butter, cut into pieces
2-1/4 cups diced Apples, peeled if desired (3 medium Cortland or McIntosh apples)
3/4 cup ( sour cream
1 egg
In large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Cut in butter with pastry blender or two knives until mixture is crumbly. Stir in apples .
In small bowl, using a fork, stir sour cream and egg until well mixed. Stir into flour mixture to form smooth, soft dough. Turn out onto lightly floured surface; knead 8 times.Shape into 9-inch (23 cm) circle.
Cut into 6 wedges Brushed top with some melted butter.
Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until puffed and golden brown.
Enjoyed mine with some homemade peach jam my Mother made but they would be equally good with butter, cream cheese even apple butter.

These look delicious. I've been baking everything apples lately. Love apple season. I'll have to try this recipe. I can taste it now with a nice cup of tea.
