For Scones:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup COLD butter
  • 1 large apple , peeled and chopped (I use Granny Smith...nice and firm!)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup honey
For Topping:
  • 2 Tablespoons rolled oats
  • 1 Tablespoon Turbinado sugar (if you do not have this, substitute granulated sugar)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
For Glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-3 teaspoons warm water (or till thin enough for "drizzling" tops of cooked scones
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and nutmeg. (You can also use a food processor for this, if desired)
  3. Cut in the COLD butter with a pastry blender (or pulse until cut into small crumbs in a food processor).
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together the milk, honey and apple. Add this mixture to the dry ingredients; mix until blended.
  5. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead the dough gently until all ingredients are combined. (You might want to lightly flour your hands) Form the dough into an 8-9 inch circle and about 3/4 inch thickness. Slice into 8 wedges. Carefully put the wedges onto prepared baking sheet (keep them in a circle, but leave about 3/4 inch between each wedge).
  6. In a small bowl, mix together the topping ingredients, EXCEPT FOR THE MILK.
  7. Using a pastry brush, lightly brush and cover the tops of each scone with the milk.
  8. Sprinkle each scone with the topping ingredients evenly till all of the mixture has been distributed.
  9. Bake at 400 degrees for approximately 20 minutes (or until golden brown). Remove scones from oven and let them cool on a wire rack. Mix glaze ingredients and decoratively drizzle glaze over tops of scones when cool. Serve... and enjoy!
