Scone Ingredients:

  • 2 cups All-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup Brown sugar -- packed
  • 2 teaspoons Baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 tablespoons Butter or margarine
  • 1 cup Dried apples -- chopped
  • 1/2 cup Unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup Buttermilk
  • 1 Egg


  • 1 teaspoon Granulated sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon Ground cinnamon

Scone Preparation:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees; spray a large cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and salt; mix well. Using a pastry blender or fork, cut in the margarine until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the apples. In a small bowl, combine the applesauce, buttermilk and egg; mix well. Add to hte dry ingredients; stir just until moistened. The dough will be sticky. Place the dough on the cookie sheet. With wet fingers, shape it into an 8-inch circle about 3/4-inch thick. In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over the top of the dough. With a sharp knife, score the top surface into 8 wedges, cutting about 1/4-inch deep. Bake for 18 to 22 minutes, or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cut into wedges. Serve warm.
