Apfel-Scones

Apfel-SconesScones are my new favourite for a easy snack on sunday afternoon when I longing for something sweet. The raspberry scones I made in September tasted great and so I wanted to try another variation. When I saw that the last apple from my parents garden started to shrivel a little bit I decided to make apple scones with some whole wheat flour, almonds and some “winterly” spices. It is not Winter now but the last mornings were ice cold, and so cardamom, allspice and cinnamon seemed to fit very well.

The Whole wheat flour and the almons at a little bit more substance to the scones and the apple balance nicely tart and sweet.

I like the scones best with some cranberry jam and a cup of Earl Grey tea.

    These look wonderful. I love apples, so am very happy this time of year. I’m sure these are great with a cup of tea or coffee in the afternoon.
