I found this on the 'net in a hungry search for ever more scone recipes. This was listed as being a prize winner in a recipe contest for wheat germ. They don't contain egg so a true scone aficionado would probably say these are a biscuit not a scone.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2⁄3 cup wheat germ
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1⁄3 cup butter or 1⁄3 cup margarine, cold
- 1 large tart apple, peeled and finely chopped, about 1 1/4 cups
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 1⁄4 cup honey
- 2 teaspoons wheat germ
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- In a large bowl, combine flour, wheat germ, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and nutmeg. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
- Combine the apple, milk and honey; add to dry ingredients just until moistened. Turn onto a floured surface, knead gently 4 or 5 times.
- Gently pat dough into a 9-in. circle, about 1/2 inch thick. Combine topping ingredients and sprinkle over dough. Cut into eight wedges and place on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-18 minutes.
I think there may be something wrong with the liquid amounts, because gathering it to knead didn't quite work. Otherwise, we loved the flavor and are always greatful when we can get a healthy breakfast recipe.
