    Transfer to oven tray. Brush with a little melted butter, sprinkle with reserved apple and cinnamon sugar. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until scones are well-risen and golden. Transfer to wire rack to cool slightly. Serve warm with jam and yoghurt.


Be careful not to overwork the dough - use gentle, soft hands to ensure a light result. These are best eaten on the day they are made.
