Cinnamon and Apple Scones Recipe UK

Apple and Cinnamon have got to be one of the best sweet flavour combinations.? Add them to scones, and you have a match made in heaven.?

Cinnamon Apple Scones Recipe from the UK is a tasty twist on the original plain scone recipe enjoyed in Britain for hundreds of years.

Nowadays, with such ready available ingredient, we can be more adventurous in the kitchen, and so many different scone combinations have been created – lucky us!

When using a cutter to cut the scones, be sure to use the straight edge and not the crinkled one.  The smooth edge allows the scones to rise with ease when cooking.
