1 2/3 cups of all purpose flour
1 1/3 cups rolled oats
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 sticks cold unsalted butter, cubed
1 1/2 cups diced apple
2/3 cold buttermilk
Preheat the oven to 400 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix together the flour, oats, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Using a pastry blender (or two knives works well too) cut in the butter until the mixture is crumbly. Stir in the apples and buttermilk just until mixed. On a lightly floured surface shape the dough into a large rectangle, about 1 1/2 inches thick. Cut the dough into 12 square scones and place onto the baking sheet. Bake for 18-20 minutes, until lightly browned.
As with most baked goods, these scone are best served warm on the day of. They're moist, not too dense and have the perfect amount of apple and spice.
