Apple - Raisin Scones with Bourbon Whipped Cream
Family Tested & Approved
apples, peeled, cored and diced
egg white with 1t water for egg wash
coarse sugar for sprinkling on top
In a large bowl stir together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
In a medium bowl toss diced apples with cinnamon then add to large bowl along with the raisins and stir.
In a medium bowl combine sour cream, egg and bourbon. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add this all at once. Stir until combined.
Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Quickly knead by gently folding and pressing for about 10-12 strokes. Pat into about a 12 inch circle and using a 3 inch cookie cutter cut out about 8 circles.
Place the scones on a parchment lined baking sheet. With your fingers rub some egg wash on the top of each scone and sprinkle with the coarse sugar.
Bake at 375 for 15 minutes until edges begin to brown.
While cooling whip the cream and sugar with a hand mixer. When whipped, fold in the bourbon and serve prepared cream with the scones.
