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

Directions

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
