  • 3 cups all-purpose flour + flour for dusting
  •  1/2 cup white sugar
  •  5 teaspoons baking powder
  •  1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
  •  3/4 cup grated, frozen butter
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1/3 Cup Finely chopped seasoned apples OR apples stewed and slightly crushed into almost applesauce OR leftover apple pie filling


  1. Sift together dry ingredients, including cinnamon and nutmeg.
  2. Add frozen, grated butter into the mix and gently blend in with pastry cutter until the dry mix is crumbly.
  3. In a separate bowl, measure out milk, beat in an egg, and add the almond extract.
  4. Slowly add the wet mixture into the dry, folding so as not to over mix.
  5. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently until the dough can be patted into a cohesive round.
  6. Divide dough into 8 slices and bake at 400 degrees or until slightly browned. 

For the Topping

Mix together powdered sugar and milk, whisking until a basic frosting forms. Bring to a boil. Remove from the heat until mixture is sticky and thin. Spread over scones and sprinkle sliced 
almonds on top. 

Enjoyable with tea or coffee : )
