Ingredients

  • 3 1/4

    cups flour

  • 1/3

    cup brown sugar

  • 1

    Tbsp. baking powder

  • 1/2

    tsp. salt

  • 2

    tsp. cinnamon

  • 8

    Tbsp. cold unsalted, butter

  • 1

    large fresh Granny Smith apple

  • 4

    oz. cream cheese, cold and cut into pieces

  • 2

    eggs

  • 1/4

    cup apple cider

  • 1/2

    cup applesauce

  • Topping:

  • 2

    Tbsp. butter, melted

  • 3

    tsp. raw sugar

  • 1/2

    tsp. cinnamon

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In your Kitchen Aid Mixer, blend together the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon. Add the cold butter and mix until crumbly. Stir in the chopped apple and the cream cheese. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, applesauce, and cider. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until the batter is moistened and combined. With floured hands turn the dough out onto a very well floured surface.(This dough is very wet) Roll the dough with a floured rolling pin out to a thickness of about an inch and slice into 8 pieces. Carefully transfer the scones to a parchment lined baking sheet. Mix the raw sugar and cinnamon together for the topping. Brush the scones with melted butter and sprinkle the mixture on top of the scones. Bake for 18-22 minutes or until the scones are light golden brown. Let them cool a few minutes before serving. Serve warm. If freezing, cool completely and store in an airtight container. This recipe makes 8 very large scones.
