What Are Scones?
The definition of scones changes based on where you're from. In America, scones are typically shaped like triangles and taste either sweet or savory. They are usually crumbly and served at breakfast.
In the UK, scones look and taste like what we Americans call biscuits. They are usually served with clotted cream, jam, or marmalade and served at tea time.

Apple Scones Recipe Steps
Here are some pictures showing you how I made this recipe.
Preheat oven to 400. Add both types of flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a bowl and mix well.
Use a pastry blender to cut butter into coarse crumbs.
In a separate small bowl, combine half and half, egg and vanilla and whisk well.
Add to dry mixture and mix until just combined.
Fold in apples.
Place dough onto a floured surface and knead ten times. The dough may be a little sticky, so add additional flour to knead.
Shape into a 5" circle about ½" thick. Cut into four triangles and place onto an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake for 15-20 minutes.
Cool until warm, and drizzle with caramel topping and sea salt.
