What a cozy and warm way to greet the morning with these wonderful fresh apple scones. So good with a nice cup of tea or coffee, or enjoy with a glass of juice or milk.

2 cups sifted unbleached all-purpose flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 tbsp. granulated sugar
1/3 cup shortening
1 apple, peeled, cored and coarsely chopped
3/4 cup buttermilk
Cinnamon and sugar mixture (2 tbsp. sugar and 1 tsp. cinnamon mixed together) optional

Preheat oven to 400°F/200°C. Have an ungreased baking sheet ready.

In mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder and sugar. Cut in shortening. Stir in chopped apple. Add buttermilk, mix until soft dough forms.

Turn dough out onto floured board. Pat into a 6 to 7-inch round disk, sprinkle top with cinnamon and sugar mixture (topping is optional), cut into triangular or round shapes. Place on ungreased baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes or until nicely browned. Enjoy with apple jelly or pear jam.

Makes 6 scones.

Great texture, but a little bland without jam.
