Amaretto Apple Cranberry Scones

Amaretto Apple Cranberry Scones

Cranberries are finally on the shelves here in North Carolina and this girl is jumping up and down.  If you like apple cranberry juice, then you will understand why apple cranberry scones will become your new favorite treat.  These scones scream Fall in a serious way with each bite you take.  For the main ingredient I used amaretto apple butter made at my family’s apple barn in Freeland, Michigan.  Then add the cranberries to provide that burst of tartness with each bite.  I think these may be my most favorite scones I have made here at CafeTerraBlog.  Who would like a slice of Amaretto Apple Cranberry Scones to go with your coffee or tea?
