Step 1

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and spice.

Step 2

Work in the butter just until the mixture is crumbly

Step 3

Stir in the grated apple and cinnamon chips. Add the eggs, vanilla, and applesauce. Stir until all is moistened and holds together.

Step 4

Heat oven 425 degrees (I use oven at 450 myself).

Step 5

Scrape the dough onto the pan, and divide it in half.

Step 6

Gently pat and round each half into a 5" to 5 1/2" circle about 3/4" thick.


Step 7

Stir together the sugar and cinnamon, and sprinkle with the topping.

Step 8

Using a knife or bench knife that you've run under cold water, slice each circle into 6 wedges. Carefully pull the wedges away from the center to separate them just a bit; there should be about 1/2" space between them, at their outer edges.

Step 9

For best texture and highest rise, place the pan of scones in the freezer for 30 minutes, uncovered.

Step 10

Bake the scones for 18 to 22 minutes, or until they're golden brown. When you pull one away from the others, it should look baked all the say through; the edge shouldn't look wet or unbaked.
