Caramel Apple Pie Scones

Sharing is caring!

Caramel Apple Pie Scones are the perfect fall breakfast recipe to enjoy with a cup of hot tea or coffee. They are made with fresh apples and topped with sweet caramel glaze. | www.thefarmgirlgabs.comAlthough fall is not officially here yet, we are starting to show a lot of signs of it on our farm. The pumpkins are turning, the fall crops are planted and we have started to pick our delicious Jersey Fresh Apples. I am fortunate enough to live smack dab in middle of one our apple orchards. It’s pretty nice to just walk out your door and pick an apple or two off the tree to eat or bake with. I did just that the other day and whipped up these delicious Caramel Apple Pie Scones.

Apple picking is a fun family activity during the fall. Even though it is more like a job for my family, I still have a lot of fond memories of taking the kids out into our orchards to pick apples with them. We would bring a bag, walk out our front or back door and just start picking. Talk about convenience. OK, so we are a little spoiled with all the farm fresh goodness we have growing on our farm.

Caramel Apple Pie SconesApples and baking go hand in hand. These Caramel Apple Pie Scones are full of fall flavor. Apples, cinnamon and brown sugar highlight these delicious scones that have the taste and flavor of my favorite caramel apple pie.

Speaking of fond memories with the kids, I’m calling this the “Year of Sentimentality”. It’s a big year for our family – a high school senior and an eighth grader. I am so excited for all that each of their futures hold but a little sad they are not little anymore. One of the ways that I like to preserve those precious family memories is through photos and photo gifts. Shutterfly is a great site with a lot of great photo options and ideas to capture and preserve those memories.

I choose two photos for this Celebrate Family mug I ordered – a recent photo I took this summer of the kids at the beach and an older photo of the kids in one of our pumpkin patches. It’s a “then and now” mug that Anthony will love.

    Dear Melissa, You, farm girl, are not spoiled. Yeah, it’s great to walk out your door and pick apples, but running a farm must be an incredible amount of work. Hope you got to put up your feet for even a few moments to enjoy one of these gorgeous caramel apple scones. Your Anthony is going to love his mug, I love personalized gifts like this. I’ve made many Shutterfly photo books through the years and we all love to go back through them and reminisce. XOXO
