Recipe Fact
Scones are a traditional Scottish quick bread. Originally scones were made with oats, cut into wedges and baked on a hot griddle. Contemporary scone recipes, both savory and sweet, are mixed with flour and baked in the oven Whether cut into classic wedges or with a shaped cutter, scones are welcome at breakfast, tea or snack-time.
Ingredient Info
Use a firm eating or baking apple for these scones. Braeburn, Gala, Granny Smith and Haralson are all good choices. Soft or excessively juicy apples will add too much moisture to the recipe.
