Oatmeal-Scones

Yield :

  • Servings: 8
  • smart points: 3

Ingredients :

  • 3/4 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 1/4 cups wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup dried fruit (cranberries, currants, raisins, etc.) (optional)
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup light butter or 1/4 cup margarine
  • 1 tablespoon half-and-half (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon buttermilk (for brushing)
  • extra sugar (optional)

Preparation :

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • 2. Mix together the dry ingredients (oats, flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt).
  • 3. Cut in the butter and combine using a fork until the mixture resembles bread crumbs.
  • 4. Add the dried fruit to the dry mixture if desired.
  • 5. In a separate bowl, mix together the wet ingredients (half-and-half, buttermilk, vanilla).
  • 6. Gradually add the wet mixture to the flour mixture and combine until a soft and sticky dough is formed.
  • 7. Move the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead 2-3 times. Do not overwork the dough.
  • 8. Roll the dough into a 6-8-inch circle and cut into 8 pie-shaped slices (or you can experiment with other dough shapes such as circles to maximize the number of servings).
  • 9. Bake in the oven for about 15-18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean and the scones are golden-brown.
  • 10. For a golden color and extra crunch, brush the top of the scones with buttermilk. Sprinkle some sugar on top and broil for a few minutes, turning and adjusting as necessary.
