Oatmeal Scones

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 450 degrees

Line cookie sheet with parchment paper

Scone Ingredients:

1 ¼ cups wheat flour

¾ cup old fashioned oats

2 ½ Tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

1/3 cup raisins

¼ cup unsalted butter

2/3 cup milk

1 Tablespoon heavy cream

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Glaze Ingredients:

Powdered sugar

Milk

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

 Directions:

  1. Combine all dry ingredients in large mixing bowl.
  2. If the butter is coming directly out of the refrigerator, warm it very slightly in microwave for 10 seconds and then cut into pieces and add to mixing bowl.
  3. Mix dry ingredients and butter until well combined and mixture is crumbly.
  4. Add raisins and stir together to combine.
  5. Combine milk, cream and vanilla in a separate bowl.
  6. Add wet ingredient mixture to the flour mixture and mix until sticky dough has formed.
  7. Sprinkle a small amount of wheat flour on a dinner plate and turn out dough onto plate.
  8. Sprinkle top of dough with small amount of wheat flour and knead 2-3 times.
  9. Roll dough into a circle on the plate and cut into triangle pieces.
  10. I like to make smaller scones, so I cut the circle of dough into 12 pieces.
  11. Transfer cut scones onto prepared cooking sheet.
  12. Bake 12-14 minutes until golden on top.
  13. Leave scones on cooking sheet to cool.
  14. Prepare glaze, mixing enough powdered sugar, a very small amount of milk and vanilla extract to make a thick glaze that can still be drizzled from a spoon.
  15. Drizzle glaze over cooled scones.
