Apple Pie Chai Tea Scones

Great tastes of Fall – These Apple Pie Chai Tea Scones will surely please your guests!

Ingredients:

10 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp Apple Pie Chai Herbal Tisane

2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup White Whole Wheat Flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup chopped apples
4 Tbsp sugar
½ cup vanilla yogurt
½ cup milk

Drizzle:

½ cup confectioner’s sugar
1 Tbsp cream (or half and half)
½ tsp cinnamon

Directions:

In a small saucepan melt the butter. When melted add the tea, cover, and steep 10 minutes. Strain out the tea into a measuring glass to equal ½ cup of tea infused butter. Freeze.

Preheat the oven to 500°F and lightly grease a baking sheet.

Blend the flours, soda, powder and salt in a large mixing bowl.

Remove the tea butter from the freezer and chop into small pieces. Add to the dry ingredients and mix with your fingers or a fork until the mix is crumbly.

Add the apples, sugar, yogurt and milk and mix for about 30 seconds. It may not look completely blended, but turn it out onto a floured surface and lightly knead a few times until the dough holds together. Split into 2 equal parts.

Pat each dough half into a round circle (6-7” across), shaping with your hands.   Cut the dough into 6 pieces and place on the baking sheet. Reduce the heat to 450°F and bake for approximately 15 minutes, until golden brown.

Remove from the oven and cool on a rack.

Make the Drizzle:

Blend all the drizzle ingredients and pour over cooled scones. Allow to harden for a few minutes then enjoy with your favorite cup of tea!

If there are any leftovers, wrap tightly and keep at room temperature or freeze for future enjoyment!

Makes 12 scones.
