Apple-nut-cheese Scones

Scones come in such delicious varieties!  None more delicious than this lovely Apple-nut-cheese scone!

Apple-nut-cheese Scones


  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 3/4 cups self-raising flour
  • 90g sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 30g butter, cut up
  • 1 small apple, peeled, cored and coarsely chopped (3/4 cup)
  • 60g butter, melted

In a bowl combine sugar, nuts and cinnamon; set aside.

In a food processor combine flour, cheese and the butter pieces; process until mixure resembles coarse breadcrumbs.  Add apple with machine running and 1/3 to 1/2 cup of water, processing until scone dough is formed.

Shape dough into ball on lightly floured surface.  Divide into 18 equal pieces.  SHape each piece into a ball roll; roll into melted butter or margarine, then in sugar mixture.

Arrange in greased 23cm round baking tin.  Bake at 200 celsius until done (about 20-25 minutes).  Serve warm.

Cocinar, comer y ser feliz,
