Ingredients

BATTER:

2 3/4 c
all purpose flour
1/2 c
granulated sugar
1/4 tsp
salt
1 Tbsp
baking powder
2 tsp
apple pie spice
1/2 c
cold butter
1 c
chopped apple, peeled and seeded
3/4 c
cinnamon baking chips
2 large
eggs
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1 tsp
cinnamon syrup
1/2 c
apple sauce

TOPPING:

1/4 c
white coarse cookie decorating sugar sprinkles
1 tsp
ground cinnamon
1/4 c
butter, melted

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, salt , baking powder and apple pie spice. Work in the cold butter until it is crumbly chunks. Stir in the apple pieces and cinnamon baking chips.
2
In another bowl combine the eggs, vanilla,cinnamon syrup, and applesauce, mixing well. Now add to the flour mixture ,just until all the dough is moistened and holds together. If necessary add a tablespoon or 2 of cream. I have never had to use it..My sister always does.
3
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper , then sprinkle with a small amount of flour. (Do not grease the pan or paper).
4
Divide the dough in half and pat into a small round circle about one inch thick.
Brush the top of each circle with melted butter and combine the cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle on the buttered tops. Using a sharp knife dipped in cold water, slice each circle into 6 wedges.Pull wedges out a little from the center and slightly separate them from each other.(about 1/2 inch at widest part)
5
Now for the trick of theses scones.. and the best texture and high rising, place the pan of scones in the freezer for 30 minutes -uncovered. While they are in the freezer- Heat oven to 425^.
6
Bake the scones for 20-22 minutes, or until golden brown. When you pull one away from the others, it should look baked all the way through and the edges shouldn't look wet or unbaked.
7
Remove them from the oven and cool for 2 minutes on the pan.Serve warm.
When completely cool, place in plastic bags and store at room temperature up to 7 days.
