Apple Butter Scones

I will add step by step photos later.  The most important ingredient of the recipe is the apple butter. Use the best, it will make you happy  I had home made butter that I used.... it was awesome.  These scones were baked on a Cast Iron Grill pan.  Recipe was adapted from the Betty Crocker Apple Butter Scone Recipe.  Also, scones are a sweet biscuit and should be served warm with butter, jelly or in this case MORE apple butter.


2 1/4 cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup whipping cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup apple butter
1 teaspoon butter or margarine, melted
2 teaspoons prepared cinnamon-sugar


1 Heat oven to 425°F. In large bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and brown sugar. Stir in 1/4 cup butter, the eggs, whipping cream, vanilla  and apple butter until soft dough forms.

2 On lightly floured surface, pat dough into 8-inch round, about 3/4 inch thick. Brush with 1 teaspoon butter; sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar. Cut into 8 wedges. On un greased cookie sheet, place wedges 1 inch apart.

3 Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack.

Top with an Apple Butter - Powder Sugar glaze if you don't like the cinnamon sugar sprinkle or you could use both.
