Mini Muffin Apple Scones Recipe



If you're a hurried baker like me but love scones, you will love the ease of this recipe. Scones with apples and cinnamon all with the big flavor and texture of scones but without the fuss of rolling and cutting. Add them to this mini muffin pan and out comes the tastiest little morsel ever!  Often the larger scones are too much for me and these are perfect with a good cup of tea or coffee.
You can either dust with powdered sugar, dip them in a caramel sauce or drizzle some frosting over the top whichever way you choose these will be a go to recipe. Did I tell you I love these?
