Monday

We had a large carrier bag of apples
given by our neighbours from their tree -
- so i`ve been trying to use them and i did some baking
yesterday and made use of the oven while
it was on . I`ve been making scones recently - so i
used that recipe ..

Folded apple scones -

Peel , core 3 small apples and cook with a little water
and sugar in the microwave - i added fresh nutmeg -
but cinnamon goes well with apples too
-while that`s cooking -
Put 8oz S.R flour , pinch salt , tblsp sugar in
a bowl and rub in 3oz butter until like breadcrumbs -
then add milk to bind and knead for a minute .
Cut dough into 4 pieces










Roll out into a rough square







Place cooked apples in center




Fold over corners as shown -
milk dabbed onto corners to stick together .








Onto a greased baking sheet - glaze with milk
oven - 200F for approx 15 mins


Here they are - puffed out and golden -
Serve on their own , dust with icing sugar
cream / ice cream and enjoy !!





Alternatively -
add half a small tub of chopped glace cherries
and cut out - or omit the sugar and add 3oz mature
grated cheese - these are my cheese scones -
Yummy !! ;o)
