  • For Scones:
  • 1 pound 2 cups, about 2 medium Stemlit Honeycrisp Apples, peeled, cored and cut into small chunks.
  • ½ tablespoon canola oil
  • 6 tablespoons granulated sugar divided
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons 3/4 stick unsalted butter, chilled
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup sharp cheddar shredded
  • For Honey Glaze:
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • Warm water


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Heat a large sauté pan over medium heat and add oil and heat. Add apples and 1 tablespoon sugar and sauté while stirring until apples start to soften, about 1 minute. Transfer to a bowl and put in the refrigerator to cool.
  • Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, mix together flour, 4 tablespoons sugar, baking powder and salt. Grate chilled butter into the flour using a grater (or cut with knives) and use your fingers to combine into a coarse dough.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together sour cream, egg, cheddar cheese and apples. Add to dry mixture and combine with a spoon just until mixed (do not over mix).
  • Pat the dough into a 1-inch thick circle on a floured surface. Cut into 6 wedges and transfer onto baking sheet at least 1-inch apart and sprinkle with sugar. Bake 30 minutes or until golden brown.
  • While scones are cooling, make glaze by mixing together powdered sugar and honey. Add water just until you get a glaze thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Drizzled scones and eat!
