    1. 1
      Lightly spoon flour, wheat germ and bran into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, 1/3 cup sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; cut in margarine with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal(I usually do this with my fingers).
    2. 2
      Stir in apricots and cranberries.
    3. 3
      Combine buttermilk, orange rind, egg, and egg white; add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist.
    4. 4
      Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead lightly 4 times with floured hands. Roll dough into a 12 x 6-inch rectangle.
    5. 5
      Cut dough into 8 (3-inch) squares using a dull knife or a dough scraper.
    6. 6
      Cut each square into 2 triangles; place on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray.
    7. 7
      Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar; bake at 400° for 12 minutes or until golden. Serve warm. Enjoy!

      I've never been much on making these buggers, but love the taste of them when I buy them, & THESE ARE WONDERFUL! I didn't use the wheat germ or the bran this time, but fully intend to include them another time, as I'd like to know the difference in taste! Oh, yes, I also used a very rounded 1/3 cup of cranberries! Thanks for sharing! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Zaar Stars Recipe tag game]

      This is a keeper! Light and lightly sweet this is a great on the go breakfast or afternoon snack. I didn't have wheat germ and used rice bran and it worked great. I think in the future I'll try the Whole wheat flour and maybe adding some brewer's yeast for more protein. I can't wait to try freezing them. I think they'll do great and will be a wonderful OAMC breakfast dish when I'm pregnant and hate to cook!

      Marvelous scones. A perfect Sunday morning treat. I also used a heart healthy margarine and as well used half white and half whole wheat flours, double the wheat germ and no bran (didn't have any) and Splenda for the sugar. Currants were subbed for the cranberries. The orange is a delight and mixes well with the other flavors. Even with my heavier flour mix they are light textured and just plain yummy. Made for Photo Tag.
