Ingredients

BATTER:

2 3/4 c
all purpose flour
1/2 c
granulated sugar
1/4 tsp
salt
1 Tbsp
baking powder
2 tsp

Step-By-Step

1In 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.

2In 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.

4Divide 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)

5Now 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^.

6Bake 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.
