  1. Lay out plates for each person you are serving and place two scones on each.Spoon about 1/4 cup of the fruit mixture on top of one scone on each plate.Top the fruit with a heaping spoonful (or two) of cinnamon whipped cream.Cover with the other scone on each plate (make sure the apple side is facing up) and gently press down
  2. Drizzle some of the sauce from the fruit mixture on top
  3. Serve.Preheat oven to 375 degrees (F)
  4. Line two baking sheets with parchment; set aside.In a large bowl combine flours, oats, sugar, baking powder, apple pie spice and salt.Use a pastry blender to cut in the pieces of cold butter until the mixture resembled course crumbs
  5. You can also do this with a food processor if you want.Stir in the grated apple.Whisk the eggs and heavy cream in small bowl
  6. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour in the egg mixture
  7. Stir with a fork until just moistened
  8. The dough will be thick.Use a ice cream scoop or 1/4 cup measuring cup to scoop the dough into mounds and place on the baking sheets about 3 inches apart
  9. Dont flatten.Stir together the egg yolk and 1 tbsp
  10. heavy cream in a small bowl
  11. Use a pastry brush to brush the cream mixture on top of the dough mounds.Place a slice of apple on top of each mound and gently press down until the mound is about 1 inch thick
  12. Lightly brush with more cream and sprinkle with course sugar.Bake for 15-17 minutes or until lightly browned
  13. Halfway though switch the position of the baking sheets and flip 180 degrees for more even baking
  14. Transfer the sheets to a wire rack and cool for 5 minutes
  15. Place scones on a platter or wire rack to cool a bit more
