I’ve been doing a lot of baking lately (I’ve been making all the Superhero muffins from Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow.) so today I’m sharing the recipes for the apple cinnamon scones I made last weekend!
2 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
2 apples (diced)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a medium bowl, mix flour, 1/3 cup sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
If butter is soft, break into small chunks or grate frozen butter into flour mixture on the large holes of a box grater
Use your fingers to work in butter (mixture should resemble coarse meal), then stir in apples
In a small bowl, whisk Greek yogurt and egg until smooth.
Using a fork, stir sour cream mixture into flour mixture until large dough clumps form. Use your hands to press the dough against the bowl into a ball. (The dough will be sticky in places, and there may not seem to be enough liquid at first, but as you press, the dough will come together.)
Place on a lightly floured surface and pat into a 7- to 8-inch circle about 3/4-inch thick. Sprinkle with remaining sugar.
Use a sharp knife to cut into 8 triangles; place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, about 1 inch apart.
Bake until golden, about 15 to 17 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes and serve!
