Preheat oven to 375 degrees; spray a large cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and salt; mix well.
Using a pastry blender or fork, cut in the butter or margarine until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Stir in the apples.
In a small bowl, combine the applesauce, buttermilk and egg; mix well.
Add to the dry ingredients; stir just until moistened.
The dough will be sticky.
Place the dough on the cookie sheet.
With wet fingers, shape it into an 8-inch circle about 3/4-inch thick.
In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over the top of the dough.
With a sharp knife, score the top surface into 8 wedges, cutting about 1/4-inch deep.
Bake for 18 to 22 minutes, or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cut into wedges.
One reviewer on another site said this:
Not having any dried apple I used half of a very fresh and juicy Gala. I used just half to inhibit the moisture addition as much as possible and I diced it very small to spread the moisture out to avoid big wet apple chunks. Well, the recipe still worked beautifully.
