Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut the butter into small (1/4") chunks, rewrap it in the paper, and return it to the refrigerator. Combine the dry ingredients. Beat 1 egg and combine it with the buttermilk. Thread the butter though the dry ingredients with thumb and fingers, getting it to a gravelly texture. Comb the buttermilk-egg mixture into the butter-flour "gravel" then add the apple cubes, blending through the batter just enough to be able to make two equal sized balls. Flatten the balls to 2 disks 5-6" in diameter. Now "pizza-slice'"each disk into four sections. Put the scones on an ungreased cookie sheet. Beat the second egg and brush it on the scones as a glaze. Bake for 20 minutes, until golden brown.
