Apple Cream Cheese Scones

Ingredients:

  • 3 1/4 cups Clabber Girl Baking Mix
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 8 ounce package cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold butter
  • 1 cup diced Granny Smith apples
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • Sparkling white sugar for topping

Instructions:

Whisk together baking mix and sugar. Cut in the cream cheese and butter, using pastry blender or fork until the mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Stir in the apples. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, vanilla and milk. Combine the liquid and dry ingredients and stir only until the dough stays together; do not overmix.

Turn the dough out onto a floured work surface, and fold it over several times, until it holds together. Pat the dough into a 1/2 inch thick rectangle. Cut scones with a round cutter, gathering the scraps and re-rolling the dough. Dough can also be cut into squares or diamonds.

Brush the tops lightly with the milk and sprinkle with sparkling white or pearl sugar. Place scones about 2 inches apart on an ungreased or parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake in preheated 425 degree F. oven for 12 to 15 minutes, or until scones are a light, golden brown. Remove from oven and serve hot.
