    Default Apple Scones

    these are a bit of work, but if you prepare the night before, it's definitely a special treat breakfast
    APPLE SCONES
    SCONES: 3 COOKING APPLES, CORED, PARED AND CHOPPED
    1 TBS BROWN SUGAR OR DATE SUGAR
    2 TBS ORANGE JUICE
    1 1/2 CUPS WHOLE WHEAT PASTRY FLOUR
    2 TSP BAKING POWDER
    1/3 CUP ROLLED OATS, PLUS EXTRA FOR DUSTING
    1/2 TSP SALT
    1/2 TSP GROUND GINGER
    1/2 TSP CINNAMON
    3 TBS BUTTER OR MARGARINE
    1 TO 3 TBS SKIM MILK OR SOY MILK
    TOPPING: 2 TBS QUICK-COOKING ROLLED OATS
    1 TBS BROWN SUGAR
    1/2 TSP GROUND CINNAMON
    EXTRA MILK FOR BRUSHING SURFACE
    APPLE BUTTER (OPTIONAL)
    1. FOR SCONES, COOK APPLES WITH SUGAR AND ORANGE JUICE IN A SMALL PAN UNTIL SOFT. BEAT TO A SMOOTH PUREE AND SET ASIDE TO COOL.

    2. MIX TOGETHER FLOUR, BAKING POWDER, OATS, SALT AND SPICES. CUT IN BUTTER OR MARGARINE. STIR IN APPLE PUREE, THEN POUR IN JUST ENOUGH MILK TO MAKE A FIRM DOUGH.
    3. TURN THE DOUGH OUT ONTO A WORK SURFACE DUSTED WITH OATS AND KNEAD BRIEFLY.
    4. ROLL TO A THICKNESS OF 3/4"; CUT INTO CIRCLES WITH A 2" CUTTER. REROLL SCRAPS AND CUT MORE CIRCLES. PLACE SCONES ON A BAKING SHEET SPRINKLED WITH OATS.
    5. FOR TOPPING, COMBINE OATS, BROWN SUGAR AND CINNAMON. BRUSH TOPS OF SCONES WITH MILK, THEN SPRINKLE WITH OAT-CINNAMON MIXTURE.
    6. BAKE IN A 450 OVEN FOR 15 TO 20 MIN, OR UNTIL WELL RISEN AND GOLDEN BROWN. COOL ON A WIRE RACK.
    7. SPLIT AND SPREAD WITH APPLE BUTTER IF DESIRED. MAKES 10 SCONES = 144 CALORIES
    HELPFUL HINTS: REPLACE SOME OR ALL OF THE WHOLE-WHEAT PASTRY FLOUR WITH UNBLEACHED WHITE FLOUR -- WORKS FINE. DATE SUGAR IS FOUND IN NATURAL FOOD STORES AND JUST OFFERS A DIFFERENT FLAVOR.
