Gruyere, Apple, and Sage Scones

I’m gonna have to stop saying that i don’t bake if I keep posting these baking projects.

I’m willing to do that for these scones. Since baking does scare me quite a bit, I’m pretty proud that I pulled these off. They’re yummy, perfectly flaky, and savory with just a little sweetness.

Gruyere, Apple, and Sage Scones
Just the Tip / Inspired by Goodlife Eats

Here’s what I used:

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp fine sea salt
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 cup very cold (or frozen) butter, grated on a box grater
  • 3 large eggs, divided
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk, plus extra for egg wash
  • 2 apples, grated
  • 3 tsp finely minced sage
  • 1/3 cup diced or shredded gruyere cheese

Here’s what I did:

  1. Preheat oven to 375. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Add the grated butter and combine with the flour mixture. Stir in the sage, grated apple, and cheese.
  3. In a smaller bowl, whisk together eggs and the buttermilk.
  4. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour in the egg mixture and stir until it comes together. Turn out to a floured surface and knead until it comes together. Split into two balls and roll out into 2 8″ circles (roughly).
  5. Cut into triangles and dust the tops with a little flour. Place the scones flour-side down on the baking sheet.
  6. Whisk the last egg in a small bowl with 1 tbsp buttermilk and brush the scones with the egg wash.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.
