Remember the Cinnamon French Toast Latte from Monday? Well, I couldn’t just make that and then have nothing great to eat while sitting and enjoying it! Enter these spice glazed caramel apple scones.

Tender, soft, tart and sweet, a perfect fall breakfast to go with a perfect fall drink.  After recently baking with with caramel bits and liking how they stayed soft, I knew I wanted to try them in more baked goods. They were the perfect fit for this caramel apple combination.

Make sure that you follow the instructions and use parchment paper (these parchment paper sheets are super easy to use!) or a baking mat for these scones. The caramel pieces that are on the edges of the scones do melt and run onto the pan. So, if you don’t have your pan lined, it will make a bit of a mess!

I used tart fall apples apples to offset the sweetness of the caramel bits and drizzled each scone with a glaze filled with spices from an apple pie. Nothing ordinary about these scones!

Plus, they baked up soft and big, like those you would find in a bakery. None of that crumbly, dry scone experience here!

These have plenty of flavor without the glaze, so feel free to leave it off if you are looking to cut some calories. So go make these scones, grab yourself some coffee, and enjoy a relaxing fall morning!
