Scone Preparation:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine the flour, oat bran, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Cut in the margarine with a pastry blender or 2 knives until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. Add the egg, milk and apricots; stir just until the dough leaves the side of the bowl. Divide the dough in half; place on a lightly floured surface. Sprinkle the surface of the dough with additional flour. Roll or pat the dough into a 6-inch circle, 1 inch thick.Repeat with the remaining dough. Cut each circle into six wedges with a lightly floured knife. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 12 minutes, or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from the baking sheet. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Serve warm or cool completely.
