What's the best apple for apple scones?

There’s nothing better than a crumbly, sweet scone first thing in the morning. No need for jam and clotted cream here, just add apples to the dough to get a bit of sweetness in every bite.

Granny Smith is always a go-to when baking since they provide the classic bite and tartness we all love. But don’t be afraid to switch things up by using Golden Delicious – their silky texture is great for baking – or Piñata® for a crisp and tropical twist.

Pro tips

  • Add a savory component to your scones like cheddar cheese. There’s nothing better than a play on sweet and savory!
  • Make sure the butter is as cold as possible. The colder the butter, the crumblier the scone.
