5 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small pieces (pea sized and leave in fridge until ready to use.)

3/4 cup buttermilk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 medium apples, peeled, cored, and chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)

  2. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or lightly grease.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and 1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon.
  4. With a pastry cutter or your fingers, work in the butter pieces until thoroughly mixed throughout dough. Stir in the finely chopped apples.
