ST. LOUIS — Ingredients
· 3 ½ cup ap flour
· 4 teaspoons baking powder
· 6 tablespoons sugar(divided in half)
· 1 teaspoon salt
· 2 cups heavy cream + a bit for brushing the top
· 5 teaspoons dry ginger
· 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
· 1 cup small diced apple, skin removed (about 1 large apple)
· 1 ½ cup powder sugar
· 3-4 tablespoons milk or water
Preheat oven to 450
Sift flour, and baking powder into large bowl. Add salt, and half of your sugar.
Combine in a separate bowl the remaining sugar and spices. Put apples mixture onto bowl with four and add heavy cream. Working quickly bring the dough together with a fork and then turn out onto a floured surface. Give it a couple quick folds with your hands and shape into a circle.
Dust the top of the dough with a bit more flour and roll to approximately ½ inch, with a pastry cutter punch out rounds and place onto a sheet tray lined with parchment. Brush on the reserved cream and bake in oven for 15-18 minutes.
When scones come out of the oven you can go ahead and make your glaze. Combine your powdered sugar with milk or water one tablespoon at a time until you have a thick and slightly runny glaze. Once scones have cooled to room temperature take a fork and drizzle a bit of glaze over the top
