Apple Raisin Sconey Muffins: Now With Drizzle

Apples and cinnamon...What a fabulous combination! Throw in some raisins and you've got a muffin that is begging to eaten! Top it with a little sugar drizzle and it becomes even better! This is the perfect muffin with or without topping when you need a little snack or even just want a delicious breakfast on the go!

Apple Raisin Sconey Muffins:

What You'll Need For the Muffins:
2 cups of flour
1 teaspoon of sea salt
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of baking soda
3/4 cup of sugar
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1 stick of butter, softened
1 cup of dried apples, chopped
1 cup of raisins, chopped
1 cup of sour cream
1 cup of milk

Pre-heat oven to 425 F.

In a large bowl stir together flour, sea salt, baking powder and baking soda until mixed. Next stir in sugar and cinnamon until incorporated. Using a pastry cutter, cut the butter into the dry mixture until crumbly. Stir in apples and raisins until incorporated. Next stir in sour cream and milk until sticky batter/dough forms. Spoon dough into a muffin pan that has been lined with cupcake liners and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden.

What You'll Need For The Drizzle:
1 cup of powdered sugar
A few tablespoons of water

Drizzle over muffins right before serving.

Yum! I'm going to have to try these. I think they'll be a good way to use the rest of my dried apples from this week. =)

Scones have always seemed dry and hard to me. I've had people give me recipes and say "Oh you'll love these!" but sadly I still haven't found one that I love or even like for that matter. I just hate to bake something and trash it, though if I had seen the stipulation that we couldn't come up with our own recipes anymore in time I could have baked them and sent them to work with Jamison...
