  1. Instructions
  2. Sift the flour, salt and baking powder together, then rub in the butter.
  3. Add the sugar, grated apple and some of the milk until a soft dough forms. Don’t add too much or it will be sticky.
  4. Roll out onto a floured countertop into an 8″ round (20 cm). Score into 8 pieces with a knife (cut half way though the dough). Place onto a cookie sheet lined with a silicone sheet or parchment paper.
  5. Brush with milk and sprinkle with sugar, then bake for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown.
  6. Remove from oven and place on cooling rack. Enjoy while still warm with some good quality butter.
