Preheat the oven to 450° f. Grease an 8 or 9" pie plate or cake pan
Cut the 6 tablespoons of butter into small cubes and chill until ready to use
Cut the apple into wedges and then cut the wedges into strips then into small cubes and set aside.
In a large bowl add the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Whisk to combine.
Add the cold cubed butter to the flour mixture and toss with a fork. Next, cut the butter into the flour using two knives or a pastry cutter. If using two knives just criss-cross the knives to cut the butter into small pieces.
Mix the cream and egg together then pour this mixture into the flour/butter mixture and lightly mix. Next, add the cubed apples to the mixture and continue mixing until the flour is incorporated and turns into a soft dough.
Turn the dough into the prepared baking pan and pat down. Chill the dough in the pie plate for 10-15 minutes.
Bake for 25-30 minutes. If the top is getting too brown cover it with a piece of foil and continue baking until done.
Melt 2 tablespoons of butter and when the scones are done brush the butter over the top of the baked scones and sprinkle with the turbinado sugar.
Let the scones cool slightly then cut into 8 wedges. Serve warm.
These scones will keep for several days. Cover any leftovers with plastic wrap.
