Happy Fall!! It’s almost as if Mother Nature is paying attention to the calendar, our temperatures dropped to the low 80’s right on cue. I am not complaining, the non-stop 100’s were starting to get to me, lol. Even though the leaves do not change color here in Phoenix, I am ready to bake and cozy up in a soft blanket. These Apple Cider Glazed Apple Scones are the perfect first recipe of the new season…..

Allow the glaze to set and serve.

Notes:

  • I am not of fan of apple chunks in my food, so I shredded them with a box grater. If you prefer chunks, go right ahead and dice up your apples.
  • Each oven cooks differently so times are approximate.
  • If you like intense flavors, add more cinnamon, or add ground cloves, or allspice.
  • If you do not have Greek yogurt, substitute milk or cream.
  • I used Gala apples, but Jonagold, Braeburn, or any sweet/tart apples will work.

Since you have apple cider in the fridge now, why not make some Apple Cider Doughnuts…..

Okay technically the pork chops are made with hard apple cider {alcohol}, but they are just as delicious with regular apple cider. 😉

I love fall!!!!!

Enjoy!!
