Caramel Apple Scones

I made these about a month ago when the weather had gotten crazy once again.  Crazy weather, one day almost 70 the next 15.  I was craving something different that day so I thought hmmmmmm wonder how a caramel apple scone would taste.  So I took my scone recipe and adapted it to this yummy Scone.

2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
6 TBL cold butter *in chunks*
3/4 cup half and half
3 jonathan apples, peel and sliced
1/4 cup brown sugar
4 TBL white sugar
2 TBL butter
3 TBL cinnamon
pinch of salt
1/4 cup white wine
1/4 cup caramel pieces *see picture*

Peel and slice apples, to fry pan add butter, then apples, cinnamon, salt and sugars.  Stir until a little juice appears, add caramels.  Add the wine and reduce, it will thicken as it cooks (about 5-7 minutes)  Let cool.

For the dough combine all the dry ingredients and cut in the butter until you have crumbly, coarse dough.  Add milk all at once and gently fold mixture and then fold in the apple mixture.  Do not overwork dough.  Put in floured surface and knead for a couple of minutes.  If dough is sticky add just a bit of flour.  Place on parchment lined cookie sheet and form in a disk about 1 inch of so high.  Cut into 8 sections and separate so they are not touching, bake at 400 for approximately 15 minutes.   Do not overcook or they will be dry.  Remove and cool on rack.
 Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day and Remember to Find the time to do ALL the things YOU LOVE.
