apple_cheddar_Scones apple_cheddar_scone_recipe Happy Sunday! I am happy to share with you this scone recipe I have been eating for many mornings. It’s so nice to be able to make a batch of scones or muffins and be able to grab one while running out the door in the morning. These apple and cheddar scones are a new favorite. They have yummy chunks of sweet apple paired with the sharpness of cheese making these scones great for those indecisive about having a savory or sweet breakfast. I also love the sliced apple and thyme on top, it makes these scones look a lot more impressive than they actually are (in effort!). Enjoy guys!

Apple & Cheddar Scones
Makes 6 large scones

Ingredients:
2 cup all purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cold butter, cut into small cubes
1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
1 apple, peeled cored and diced
1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
½ cup buttermilk
garnish:
6 thinly sliced apple wheels
warmed honey
fresh minced thyme

Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
2. In a large bowl sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
3. Cut cold cubes of butter into the flour mixture until the butter is completely incorporated and the mixture has obtained a mealy texture.
4. Add the cheese, apple and black pepper and mix together until well combined.
5. Fold in the buttermilk and mix together until just combined and the mixture has formed into dough.
6. Form the dough into a 1 1/2 inch thick rectangle and cut into 6 squares.
7. Top each scone with an apple wheel and gently press into scone. Place scones onto a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for about 20 to 25 minutes or until the scones puff up and the tops just start to brown.
9. Remove from oven and gently brush apple wheels with warm honey and sprinkle with thyme. Allow scones to cool, about 10 minutes. Serve.

    I used to work in a cafe bakery and sometimes we’d score some of the French bread loaves and stuff in cheddar cheese and jalapeños. Sweet and savory. Love it.

    Apples and cheese were (ok maybe still are) one of my favorite afternoon snacks when I was a kid. What a brilliant idea for a scone flavor. Delicious! I love the little apple ring on top! Too perfect.

    It’s like apple pie but better because it is not messy and does not require a fork. Can’t wait to take a bite out of one of these!!!

    I’ve made these 3 times. They’re as good as they look and easy to make. Plus they’re great as a portable breakfast. My only quibble is the amount of pepper – but that’s a matter of taste.

    these are delicious! I made mini ones for apps/the thanksgiving table and added freshly chopped spring onion.
