Scone Ingredients:

  • 2 cups All-purpose flour
  • 1 cup Rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup Granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup applesauce
  • 2 tablespoons Margarine
  • 1/2 cup Cranberries -- coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup Peeled apple -- chopped
  • 1/4 cup Skim milk
  • 1/4 cup Honey -- plus 2 tablespoons

Scone Preparation:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees; spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine the flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, salt, baking soda and cinnamon. Add 1/2 cup applesauce and the margarine; cut in with a pastry blender or fork until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the cranberries and apple. In a small bowl, combine the milk and 1/4 cup honey. Add to the flour mixture; stir together until the dough forms a ball. Turn the dough out onto a well-floured surface; knead 10 to 12 times. Pat the dough into an 8-inch circle. Place on the baking sheet. Use the tip of a knife to score the dough into 12 wedges. In another small bowl, combine the remaining 1/4 cup applesauce and 2 tablespoons honey. Brush the mixture over the top of the dough. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until lightly browned. Immediately remove from the baking sheet; cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Serve warm or cool completely. Cut into 12 wedges.
