This scone has a soft center with a firm exterior, it's chock full of apples and flavor. The bourbon whipped cream is the icing on the cake, so to speak. My family loves this delicious scone for breakfast or as a sweet snack, creamy and delicious.

1
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.
2

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.
5
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.
6
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.
