Line or grease a baking sheet. Cut the butter into the flour and then rub it lightly until you have a crumb-like mixture. Stir in the apple and, if using them, the rose petals. Beat the rosewater with the egg and add to the apple and flour mixture, and mix to a stiff but elastic dough. Turn out onto a floured worktop and divide into the number of scones you need.
