Apple Brie Scones

Happy Halloween! After dressing up as Jem, my favorite 80s TV character for the past several years, I decided to fast forward to the 90s this year and go as Angela Chase from My So-Called Life, which is seriously one of the best shows ever! I was a little nervous no one would get my costume, but all the girls immediately squealed in recognition after I directed them to read my shirt. My mom found the skirt in my closet at home and mailed it to me, so I was able to rock some plaid that I actually wore in high school, how fun is that? Too bad she didn’t keep my Doc Martens!

Apolinaras even got into the act this year and dressed up as an internet troll (troll ears, green wig, and a shirt that said “Your blog sucks” – haha). And Shannon was a naked chef – so fun!

I’d like to think Angela’s dad, Graham, would have whipped up these scones during the culinary class he ended up teaching (yes, I remember these things!). They’ve got a lovely light texture and I really enjoyed the contrast of the sweet apple and savory brie.

And as promised, here’s a picture of my lab as the cast of Glee – I was Mr. Shu! Hope everyone had an awesome Halloween!

Apple Brie Scones
Printable Recipe

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 apple, peeled, cored and chopped into small chunks
4 ounces brie, chopped into small chunks

Heat oven to 375˚F. Place flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl and mix well. Use a pastry cutter or fork to work butter into the flour until a coarse meal forms. Mix in cream, egg, and vanilla extract until soft dough forms. Knead in apple and brie chunks.

Place dough onto a greased pizza pan and form into an 8-inch circle. Cut the circle into eight wedges and separate the scones on the cookie sheet so they are each at least 1 inch apart. Bake at 375˚F for 18 to 22 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes and serve. Makes 8 scones.

  1. Love the costume! I had a couple girls last night come as 80’s girls and I told them I used to dress like that…and not on Halloween. I felt old but I also got a good laugh.

    I love the combination of apple and brie, so I’m anxious to give these a try. Have you ever used them on a sandwich with some turkey and then grilled it? Heavenly!

  2. I love using brie in all sorts of crazy ways and this sounds absolutely ideal! You look so adorable in your Angela Chase costume. Man I used to love that show…

  3. Love the costume! I can’t get enough of My So-Called Life. I proudly sport an I Love Jordan Catalono tee [] and it kills my soul a little bit more every time a younger cousin gives me with a puzzled look and then asks,”Who’s Jordan?” *sigh*

  4. Kerstin, I think I just died and went to scone heaven. I love scones sooo much and with apple and brie?! holy moly. Your lab is too cute! Glee is my favorite right now..can’t get enough of their singing!

  5. Jem! I love it!

    I have some leftover Brie, this would be a great way to use it :) My co-workers seriously LOVED the pumpkin cupcakes, and my photo of them made it on FoodGawker. They’re that pretty and perfect…awesome recipe!!

  6. It must be a generational thing – I am probaby 15 years older than you – not sure what My So Called Life was – my daughter was too little to watch it then, and apparently I was too old!

    Love that you dressed as the case of Glee! I still have to watch the Halloween episode! 😀

  7. Hahaha I love both of your costumes! Going as Angela was such a good idea. You look great.

    Oh my goodness – these scones sound amazing! I love brie.

  8. oh my gosh! I used to love my so called life. I knew who you were right away. Ah- that show rocked. And the glee costumes are pretty fabulous too. I want to try these scones. I’ve never had a scone with cheese in it. Sounds pretty darn tasty

  9. You’re so funny! That costume cracks me up- loved that show!

    Apple and brie are so good together. No one else in my family likes brie besides my mom and I, so combinations like this always remind me of her.

  10. I love love love scones ever since having my first one in Scotland my junior year of college. They’re such a delicious treat. :)
    Ok, I need pictures of Shannon as the naked chef. Like naked naked, or like Jamie Oliver-naked chef?

  11. Yay, love hearing from all the MSCL fans :)

    Erin – Awesome shirt!

    Nicole – So glad your coworkers enjoyed them!

    Elina – Naked, naked with just an apron :) Unfortunately all our pics together didn’t come out well at all, but maybe we can work some photoshop magic!

  12. OH MY GOSH – I can’t believe I hadn’t commented on this yet (sooo behind!) MSCL is my FAVORITE!!! I have the entire series…on VHS! hahaha Your costume is great!!!!! And I’m so impressed with your lab! Are you an all-girl lab? My lab would NEVER do something like this!
