Scone Preparation:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees; grease a cookie sheet. In a large bowl, combine 1 1/4 cups flour, 3 tablespoons oat bran, cheese, baking powder, basil and salt; blend well. Reserve 1 teaspoon whipping cream. Add the remaining cream to the flour mixture, stirring just until a soft dough forms.  If the dough is too wet, stir in additional flour, one tablespoon at a time. On a floured surface, gently knead the dough to form a smooth ball. Place on the cookie sheet; pat or roll into a 6-inch circle. Cut into 8 wedges; do not separate. Brush with the reserved whipping cream; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon oat bran. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cut into wedges; serve warm
