Apple Cinnamon Scones

Bought a scones recipe book for many years. It was left in my book shelf for many years and has yet try any of the recipe in it. Today I wanted to try making cinnamon with scones.  After searching through my recipes books, found this easy recipe. The result was very good. Most importantly the scones taste very yummy. Soft inside and a little crispy on the outside while it is hot.   After dinner, my husband took one and continue to take another 2 more.  He loved it. He complimented that it tasted very good. So, this is considered a good and easy recipe.

2 cups self-raising flour (250g)
30g butter
1/3 cup caster sugar(65g)
1/3 cup milk
1 egg
1tsp ground cinnamon
1 red apple -grated

Extra 1 tablespoon of milk for glazing

Rub flour with butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs, then stir in the sugar and cinnamon and apple.  Mix egg and milk and pour into the dry mixtures and make into a soft dough.

Turn onto a lightly floured surface, knead very gently (do not over knead) then roll out to a 2 cm thickness. Cut into 5cm rounds and place on a baking sheet. Brush with milk and bake in a preheat hot oven , traditional oven 220° C for 10 min -12min or when it is slight brown on the top. Cool on a wire rack.
