Ingredients

Caramel Apple Scones

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup cream whipping cream
  • 1 large egg

Apple Mixture

  • 2 cups Granny Smith apples peeled and diced
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 1 tbsp. dark brown sugar
  • 1 pinch cinnamon

Caramel Sauce

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 cups dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup cream whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup vanilla

Instructions

Caramel Apple Scones

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a sheet pan by lining with parchment paper.
  • Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Grate in 1/2 cup butter (1 stick) and crumble together with flour mixture.
  • Add cream and whisked egg, blend until dough forms together.

Apple Mixture

  • In a small pan over medium heat, heat apples in butter, dark brown sugar and cinnamon for about three minutes.
  • Fold apple mixture into dough mixture until evenly distributed. Be careful not to overmix. You may need to add a little more flour if dough is too wet.
  • Form dough on a floured survey into a semi flat circle about the size of a dinner plate. Cut into 8 equal pie shapes. Place on parchment lined sheet pan. Bake for about 20 minutes at 400 degrees. Make caramel sauce while scones bake.
  • Remove from oven and let cool completely. Drizzle with caramel sauce.

Caramel Sauce

  • Melt butter in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Add dark brown sugar and stir until melted with butter. Add cream and vanilla. Continue to stir over medium heat until thickened, about 7-8 minutes. After drizzling scones, remaining caramel can be stored in the refrigerator for about a week.
