Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Use a pastry blender to cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in apples and cheese. Make a well in the center of the mixture. In a medium bowl whisk together egg, applesauce, and sour cream. Add to flour mixture. Stir with a fork just until moistened. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently using 10 to 12 strokes or until nearly smooth. Divide dough in half. Pat or lightly roll each half to a 6-inch circle. Cut each into 6 wedges. Place dough wedges 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet. Brush with milk and sprinkle with chives. Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until golden. Remove and cool slightly on a wire rack. Serve warm. Chile-Infused Hot Honey Drizzle with purchased hot honey or make your own by stirring 1 tsp. crushed red pepper into 1/4 cup honey.
