Good Things Catered. Since finding this site, I've printed recipe after recipe and I can't wait to try them all.
I'm still making lots of apple recipes as the price on apples is still so low. We love scones and this Apple Cinnamon recipe is delicious. It has chunks of apple, lots of cinnamon and they're quite moist. They're so simple to make, that I made them before we went to church so we could have them when we got back.

2 1/4 c. all purpose flour
1/3 c. dark brown sugar

1 stick (8 Tbsp) butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
1/4 c. applesauce
1/4 c. milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 c. apples, cored peeled and diced

In small bowl, combine egg, applesauce, milk, vanilla, whisk to combine thoroughly and set aside.
In large bowl combine flour, sugar, powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, salt, and whisk to combine.
