Chef Chris Sheppard’s Bakeapple Coconut Scones

I first tasted this recipe at the Bonavista Institute’s Building Place workshop where Chef Chris Sheppard baked these delightful scones with a unique Newfoundland twist: bakeapples. After bugging Chef Chris enough, he shared his recipe. If you enjoy it, let him know on Twitter at @BonavistaChef
