Apple-Cinnamon-Walnut Drop Scones
Yield: 11 to 14
  • 2 cups self-rising flour, such as White Lily
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 4 tablespoons cold salted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 cup diced, peeled Granny Smith apple
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts, toasted
  • 1⁄3 cup cinnamon baking morsels, such as Hershey’s
  • 2⁄3 cup cold heavy whipping cream 1 large egg
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon turbinado sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine flour and sugar, whisking well. Using a pastry blender, cut butter into flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Add apple, walnuts, and cinnamon morsels, stirring to combine.
  4. In a small bowl, combine cream, egg, and vanilla extract, whisking well. Add to flour mixture, stirring until mixture is evenly moist. (If dough seems dry, add more cream, 1 tablespoon at a time.) Working gently, bring mixture together with hands until a dough forms.
  5. Using a levered 3-tablespoon scoop, drop dough onto prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle tops of scones with turbinado sugar.
  6. Bake until light golden brown and a wooden pick inserted in the centers comes out clean, approximately 20 minutes.
  7. Serve warm.
  8. Recommended Condiment: Faux Clotted Cream
