Apple Honey Scones
These are very healthful apple and honey scones with the addition of wheat germ and chopped apples. Spiced up with cinnamon and nutmeg and sweetened with honey.
2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2/3 cup toasted wheat germ
1/3 cup margarine
1-1/4 cups finely chopped apple
1/2 cup skim milk
1/4 cup honey
1 tablespoon toasted wheat germ
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon sugar
Preheat oven 400 degrees. Lightly spray a large cookie heet with non-stick cooking spray. Handle the dough gently; overmixing the scones can make them tough.
Combine flour, wheat germ, baking powder, spices, baking soda and optional salt. Cut in the margarine until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add combined apple, milk, and honey, mixing until dry ingredients are moistened. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface; knead gently 5 to 6 times. Pat dough into a 9-inch circle.
Mix together topping ingredients (1 tablespoon wheat germ, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1 tablespoon sugar). Sprinkle over dough. Cut dough into 10 wedges. Place 1/2-inch apart on prepared cookie sheet. Bake 16 to 18 minutes, or until golden brown.
