Scone Preparation:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees; grease an 8-inch round cake pan. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, wheat germ, sugar, baking powder and salt. With 2 knives or a pastry blender, cut in the butter until the size of coarse crumbs. Toss the chopped apple and cheese in the flour mixture. Beat together the egg white and milk until well combined. Add to the flour mixture, mixing with a fork until dough forms. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead 6 times. Spread the dough evenly in the cake pan and score deeply with a knife into 6 wedges. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the top springs back when gently pressed. Let stand for 5 minutes; remove from the pan. Cool before serving.
