Apple Scones

A few weeks ago, I bought a bag of apples since they're in season and I needed some fruit in my life. The thing is, they weren't very good apples. So I decided to bake them! These scones weren't anything super special, but they were decent. A little dry-I probably won't make them again, but who knows!
