Most scones ARE cooked; they're better that way. What I mean, of course, is that these are made with leftover cooked oatmeal. The only way to get leftover oatmeal in my house is to make extra and hide enough for these right away. There is nothing more comforting on a cold winter morning than a big bowl of oatmeal - except for these scones, with a little butter and honey and a nice pot of tea.
- Melt the butter and honey together, and mix them into the cool, cooked oatmeal.
- Mix in the milk, half at a time.
- Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt.
- You may wish to adjust the salt depending on how much was used in cooking the oatmeal- I am assuming not very much, if any.
- Mix the flour into the oatmeal.
- If the mixture seems too moist, add a little more flour.
- (This will depend on how moist your cooked oatmeal was. When enough flour has been stirred in, the dough will form a rough ball.) Roll out to 1" thick and cut in wedges, or scoop it out with an ice cream scoop and flatten it to 1" with dampened hands.
- Bake on a greased and floured sheet at 350°F for 15 to 20 minutes.
