if there is one treat that i like as much as oatmeal raisin cookies, it is currant scones.  i can justify eating treats that have some semblance of healthiness in the form of oats and dried fruit.  i cannot wait to eat one tomorrow morning with my coffee!

  • 3/4 C rolled oats
  • 1 C white wheat flour
  • 1 C all purpose flour
  • 1/2 C sugar scant
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 2 t baking powder
  • 5 T butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 C dried currants
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 1/2 C buttermilk + extra for glaze
  • 3 T brown sugar
  • 1 t cinnamon
  1. preheat oven to 350°
  2. mix all dry ingredients in med bowl.  using your fingers, incorporate butter until it looks like a coarse meal. throw in currants
  3. measure buttermilk, whisk in eggs and vanilla, and using a fork, mix into the dry mixture until it forms sticky dough
  4. turn out dough onto lightly floured counter, and with floured hands, gently form into 8 inch dia. circle.
  5. cut into 8 slices, and transfer to a parchment-covered or greased) baking sheet.
  6. glaze scone wedges with extra buttermilk, then sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon mixture.
  7. bake 18 min in preheated oven.
