Ingredients

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp 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

    Topping

  • 1 tbsp toasted wheat germ
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp sugar


Directions

  1. Preheat oven 400F. Lightly spray a large cookie heet with non-stick cooking spray. Handle the dough gently; overmixing the scones can make them tough.
  2. Combine flour, wheat germ, baking powder, spices, baking soda & optional salt. Cut in the margarine until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add combined apple, milk, and honey, mixing until dry ingredients are moistened.
  3. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface; knead gently 5-6 times. Pat dough into a 9-inch circle. Mix together topping ingredients (1 tbsp wheat germ, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, and 1 tbsp sugar). Sprinkle over dough. Cut dough into 10 wedges. Place 1/2-inch apart on prepared cookie sheet. Bake 16-18 minutes, or until golden brown.
