Apple Scones


I baked a lot for the last 2 weeks.

Because I rearranged my room and my bookshelves (I wanted to give some of my books to the library). First I thought that I will have more space as my plan was to give most of my old cookbooks. But when I opened and read it again, I found that I still love it, haha, anyway, I tried not to keep all of them.

I really love to read, and after using Kindle, when I saw that I read 600+ books (plus manga), in 10 months, I was surprised ^^.

OK, talking about cookbooks again.

I have too many cookbooks (in many languages) when I started baking and cooking, most of them are basic recipes (or a book with a load of recipes) as I didn't have any fundamental knowledge. But now, what I want from the book is not the recipe, but an idea and inspiration. When I saw an interesting recipe, I took the idea and used my beloved recipe instead.

Today is another lovely idea from my old cookbook, that I adapted to suit my taste. As I love the apple to be soft so I cooked it a bit before adding it into the dough. But you can skip this step if you don't mind about it.
This scone is not too rich and it will go very well with butter and cream (and don't forget a cup of tea).
