Food Processors Are Great For Dough

I have started using my food processor recently for all of my dough projects, but you can easily mix this scone dough in a mixing bowl. Pie crusts, cinnamon rolls, and scone dough all work really well in food processors.

Apple Scone Dough

I am using my traditional scone dough recipe, but I added cinnamon and honey (hence the darker color!) and chopped apples. That’s it. Easy peasy.
