Caramel Apple Scones. I really wanted to make her version but didn't have the exact ingredients on hand. I needed a bit more flour than the recipe called for too, They turn out almost cake like, perfectly moist and oh so yummy.
Chocolate Toffee Apple Scones
2 cups flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup butter cut up and frozen
1/2 cup milk
1cup chopped apple (about the size of pencil erasers)
a scant cup of chocolate toffee candies chopped (I used Ande's Toffee Crunch Thins because I had them on hand, but a crushed chocolate toffee candy bar such as Skor or Heath would work just as well. )
In a food processor add your flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Pulse a couple of times to combine then add the butter and pulse until the mixture resembles course crumbs.
Whisk together the milk and egg and slowly add to the flour mixture until a dough forms. Add the apples and chocolate. They will probably not fully incorporate in the food processor, so turn out onto a well floured surface and knead a few times to get them fully mixed in. Note: The dough is pretty sticky.
Lightly spray a cookie sheet with no stick spray and place the dough in the center flattening it out to about a 9 inch round. Sprinkle generously with granulated sugar and bake for aprox. 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and cut into wedges. You can serve these warm but they're just as delicious the next day...if you have any left.
