Step 1

Apple and Cheddar Scone - Step 1

Put the apples and sugar into a pan. Heat on medium for a few minutes, until the apple is getting tender. Remove and leave to cool.
Place flour, baking powder into an electric mixer, add the diced cold butter. Mix until looks like crumbs. Add the cool apple, cheddar, one egg and mix again. Add the second egg, and finally the cream. Mix until the dough comes together, but please don't overmix!
Wrap into kitchen foil, and have a rest in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 180 C. Place a baking sheet on the baking tray.
Place the dough onto floured surface. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough to 1 cm thick. Take your cutter and make circle scones.
Place them on baking sheet, lightly brush with beaten egg, then sprinkle with some grated cheddar.
Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until golden.

You can serve them with smoked salmon, avocado or plain soft cheese.
