Crusty and coated with a delicious caramel coating on the outside, soft and buttery on the inside. These Caramel Apple Scones are what Fall dreams are made of. Made with real apple pieces and apple pie seasoning, you’ll be as happy it’s Fall.
Scones are one of those baked goods that don’t get the reputation it deserves, in a good way. I remember the first time I had a scone and, although it was good, I was a bit confused as if it should’ve been a biscuit or just an incredibly dry piece of bread. After many interactions with the delicious scone, I’ve come to accept this baked treat as a biscuit, the way the Brits enjoy them.
I love scones. I love how rustic they are and how if you have a basic scone recipe, you can recreate as many scones as you want with different flavors. I should know because I have made many scones that are published on my blog like these Maple Pecan Scones, Salted Caramel Scones, Classic Buttermilk Scones, and Citrus Basil Scones. Now adding to the list, Caramel Apple Scones.
Tips for making these Caramel Apple Scones
The key to any dough-like pastry is butter. Not just butter, but cold butter. The colder the better. The fat from the butter will coat the flour making that butter flavor and flaky and soft buttery texture consistent throughout the scones. Keep the butter in the refrigerator until you are absolutely ready to use it.
Lastly, I used Apple Pie Spice that I purchased from my local grocer. You could make your own Apple Pie Spice seasoning if you would like, but I found this seasoning to make all the difference. Between all of these tips, you should be off to enjoying these delicious Caramel Apple Scones in no time.Print
