In my quest for recipes using apples I came across this one. I love going to tea and hosting tea parties so I was more than eager to bake these scones. The recipe is from http://www.tasteofhome.com/Recipes/Caramel-Apple-Scones.aspx This recipe also allowed me to use my Kitchen-Aid attachment to shred the apples. I have had the attachment for over four years.

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons half-and-half cream
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup shredded peeled apple
  • 1 tablespoon caramel ice cream topping


Directions
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
In a small bowl, combine the flours, brown sugar, baking powder and salt.
Cut in thebutter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
In a small bowl, whisk the cream, egg yolk and vanilla; add to dry ingredients just until moistened.
Stir in apple.
Turn onto a floured surface; knead 10 times.
Pat into a 5-in. circle.
Cut into four wedges.
Separate wedges and place on an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
Cool for 10 minutes.
Drizzle with caramel topping.


You could cut these into more wedges instead of four. I also thought that maple syrup might be tasty drizzled over them.
