Everyday Mom's Meals: It's A Trend

It's A Trend

When I sat down to blog this recipe I realized something interesting. This is the second Monday in a row I am sharing a scone recipe with you. It wasn't planned that way, but apparently I've started a trend. I'm guessing it won't continue next Monday, but a two week occurrence can still be a trend, right?!

After my luck at making the Cranberry Orange ones I shared last week, I wanted to try them again! Like I said in that post, I've never been a fan, but I can whole heartily say I am a convert! In fact, I would venture to say I've almost become addicted. They are much easier to make then I ever imagined and I just adore the texture and flavor. These make the perfect weekend breakfast or brunch item, but truthfully I love serving them for dessert too. I usually have them for breakfast in the morning and the leftovers, (if there are any) become a quick dinner time sweet treat. I haven't done it myself, but I'm guessing these would be great baked off, frozen and then reheated for a quick school/workday morning too.

Without even trying, I've started a trend here on EMM, and while I'm not making any promises, I'm guessing it's one that while not on a weekly basis, will continue at some point!

Apple Cinnamon Scones From AllRecipes
2 c. flour
1/4 c. sugar, plus 2 TBS for topping
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 c. butter, chilled
1 medium apple, peeled and diced
1/2 c. milk, plus extra for topping
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon, plus extra for topping

Preheat oven to 425. In a large bowl combine flour, 1/4 c. sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon. Mix well. Cut in butter until crumbly. Add apple and milk. Stir to form soft dough. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently 8-10 times. Pat into two 6 inch circles. Place on greased baking sheet (or use parchment paper or Silpat). Brush with milk and sprinkle with extra sugar and cinnamon. Cut each round piece into 6 pie shaped wedges. Bake for 15 minutes until browned and risen.
