Apple Cinnamon Scones

There’s nothing like fresh, hot apple cinnamon scones with a cup of coffee.
Light as air and crumbly, these apple cinnamon scones are packed with chunks of apple and cinnamon. The scones are made with a basic milk scone base so the texture is supremely tender.
Fall is just around the corner and it’s on one of my favorite baking seasons. All the cozy and warm spices, apple, pear, pumpkin, and everything that screams comfort. I just adore it!
