Apple Pie Scones

2- 1/4 cup of sifted flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons of baking powder, leveled
½ cups of milk
2 tablespoons of molasses
2 cups of finely chopped apples (about 2 medium apples)
½ teaspoons of cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon of allspice
1/4 teaspoon of ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon of ginger
1/3 cup of canola oil
1/8 teaspoon of salt

Cinnamon-Sugar Topping:

2 ½ tablespoons of light brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon of cinnamon

To Prepare the Scones:

Peel and very finely chop the apples and place in a mixing bowl.

Now sift the flour and baking powder and add to another larger mixing bowl with the sugar, ½ teaspoons of cinnamon, allspice, cloves, ginger, and mix with a fork or a large spoon before adding the wet ingredients of the canola oil and molasses.

Mix all the ingredients except for the topping thoroughly. You don’t need to use an electric mixer. A wooden spoon or a large spoon works out well.

Next, shape into small balls and roll into the cinnamon-sugar topping.

To Prepare the Topping:

Just mix the cinnamon and sugar together in a small bowl where you can drop in the shaped scones and coat before placing on a well-greased baking sheet.

Bake in a 350-degree oven for 10-12 minutes, depending on how your oven is regulated and the size of the shaped scones that are making. Larger sizes may take a minute or two longer.

Check the doneness by stabbing the center of the scone with a toothpick, slender knife or just lifting the bottom and seeing if the scone is lightly brown.

Give the baked scones about a minute before attempting to remove them from the baking sheet.

ENJOY!
