Farmville Inspired - Apple Scones!

Anyone who knows me in real life knows I'm kind of addicted to Farmville 2.

One of the things I love most about it is the kitchen, where you can craft yummy looking foods! Each thing in the menu looks so tasty, it makes me want to try to make it in real life... maybe I will!

I made some apple scones! Kind of a combination of a few recipes, plus adding a few twists of my own. Does that make it my recipe? Not sure. But they turned out pretty good!

Farmville Inspired Apple Scones:

85g chilled, unsalted butter, cubed
250g all purpose flour, sifted
250g whole wheat flour, sifted
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tbsp sugar
2 apples peeled, cored, and shredded
56g apple butter
200ml buttermilk
1 large egg

Preheat the oven to 425 F.  Cover a flat baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

In a large bowl, mix the butter and both flours until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.  Stir in the baking powder, sugar, salt and cinnamon.

In a separate bowl, mix the shredded apple with the apple butter.  Beat the egg into the buttermilk and add to the apple mixture.

Make a well in the centre of the dry mix and add the apple mixture.  Mix until combined.  Using a spoon or ice cream scoop, drop the dough onto parchment pape.

Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until slightly browned on the edges.  Serve warm.
