Serves: 8
  • 3 cups flour
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 Tbs. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 4 Tbs. cold butter
  • ½ cup apple cider
  • ½ cup milk
  • 3 Tbs. honey
  • 1 cup diced apples
  • Topping:
  • Cinnamon
  • Turbinado sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in the cold butter into the flour mixture.
  3. In another bowl, mix together the apple cider, milk and honey. Pour almost all of the apple cider mixture into the flour mixture and add in the apples. Mix until incorporated. You can add the reserved apple cider mixture if needed. The dough should be slightly crumbly, but still able to shape into a ball.
  4. Sprinkle flour onto your work surface and place the dough onto it. Use your hands to press the ball down to 1½ inches thick. Cut the flattened dough circle into eight slices.
  5. Place the slices onto the baking sheet. Sprinkle cinnamon and turbinado sugar onto each slice.
  6. Bake for 14 minutes, or until tops are golden brown.
