How to Make the Tastiest Caramel Apple Treat in Just 30 Minutes

Wow, did you know that Walmart has a food blog? Well, they do! It’s called “Food and Celebrations: a fresh start”, and if this mouth-watering recipe for Caramel Apple Scones is any indication – it’s a pretty darned good food blog too! Oh, please excuse me, just looking at the pictures of these sweetly tantalizing scones is making me drool. I’d better get myself into the kitchen soon – it must be well past lunch time! These beautiful scones seem to have the best of all possible combinations – the thick doughy texture of scones, topped with the ooey-gooey creaminess of the caramel sauce. These two textures will blend together perfectly to create the ultimate eating experience. Your taste buds are going to love it!

This pastry recipe is not only quick and ever-so-simple to make, but it’s also very inexpensive. You can even make it from ingredients you find at your local Walmart grocery store, or if you have special dietary requirements, you can always improvise to make it as healthy as it can be. For example, instead of white flour, you can use whole wheat, brown rice, spelt, or even coconut flour for a little extra flavour. Instead of white sugar, you could use organic brown sugar, cane sugar, honey, or maple syrup – yum!

A few more healthy substitute ideas are using almond or coconut milk instead of cow’s milk, in case you are lactose intolerant or unable to consume dairy products for other health reasons. You could make sure the eggs you add are organic and from free-range chickens, as well. Oh, and of course – the apples! You buy organic apples as well. In this way, you’ll have the healthiest options for this dessert recipe. Otherwise, simply proceed as instructed! This dessert recipe can serve up to twelve people. It only takes about fifteen minutes of preparation time, and fifteen minutes of cooking time – so your luscious apple scones will be ready in thirty minutes. These scrumptious scones are great as a breakfast treat, a dessert option, or even a coffee snack. If you’re having company over for tea, serving your caramel scones is as easy as one-two-three. Ever wonder what scones are, exactly, and where they come from? Well, they are a kind of quick-bread with baking powder used for leavening, and they’re often made with wheat, oatmeal, or barley. As in this scone recipe, they can be sweetened with sprinkles of sugar or frosting, and you can even give them a beautiful glaze using whipped eggs applied with a handy pastry brush!

Scone recipes first originated in Scotland in the early 1500s and were first created with oats. The Scots would bake them on a griddle, which sounds just fine! Today, of course, we most often place them on a baking pan that goes into the oven for fifteen minutes or so – whatever works! Scones were and still are very popular all across the United Kingdom. While some believe the word “scone” comes from “schoonbrot”, or “beautiful bread” in Dutch, others insist it’s derived from the “Stone of Destiny” where the crowning of Scottish royalty would take place. Wherever the name came from, it’s pretty much agreed that they are the best-tasting treat for a lazy afternoon tea party. Well, I for one can’t wait to try out this delicious Caramel Apple Scone recipe! It’s going to be the perfect breakfast when I have guests visiting from out of town, and what a wonderful pastry to take to the party next week!
