  • coarse sea salt

  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Add flours, sugar, baking powder and salt in a bowl and mix well. Use a pastry blender to cut butter into coarse crumbs.
  3. 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.
  4. Place dough onto a floured surface and knead ten times. Dough may be a little sticky, so add additional flour to knead.
