  1. Measure flour, sugar, baking powder, soda, and salt into a large bowl. Cut in butter or margarine until crumbly. Add shredded apple and milk. Stir to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently 8 to 10 times. Pat into two 6-inch circles. Place on greased baking sheet. Brush tops with milk, and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Score each into 6 pie-shaped wedges.
  3. Bake at 425 degrees F (220 degrees C) for 15 minutes, or until browned and risen. Serve warm with butter.

Wow! These came out great... fluffy and not-too-sweet. HEADS UP--I needed to add about 1/4 cup less milk, or more flour, to given them a real scone-ish consistency. So quick and easy. I would...

I don't know what went wrong. I used a tasty granny smith apple, and added apple pie spice to the dough, but there was just no flavor. I won't be making these again. Bummer.

These scones are wonderful. I added cinnamon to the dough as many of you have. Instead of apples I used peaches and it turned out just delicious. I will definitely make these again.

i was quite pleased with this formula. the recipe was clear and the end product disappeared before i could even officially serve it. no more Starbucks scones for this one!

My first attempt at making scones and they turned out great! I really like this recipe, it's easy & they are very moist.

These were ok. The apple taste did not stand out so well, and the apple I got was ripe. Perhaps I should have purchased a Granny Smith rather than a Fugi. I would make again as it isquick and...

Fantastic, I love these scones well done. I had to make a second batch, they were eaten up almost as soon as they came out of the oven. I added some rasisns to the second batch very good......
