Ingredients

    2 cups whole wheat flour
    1/2 cup light butter spread or 50% butter/50%vegetable oil spread
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 cup lowfat buttermilk
    1 large egg
    1/4 cup sugar
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 cup coarsely chopped fresh cranberries
    1/2 cup golden seedless raisins
    1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest

Directions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Blend the flour, sugar, baking powder, lemon zest and salt together in a bowl. Cut in the butter or butter and oil, blending with the dry ingredients until you have a mixture the texture of cornmeal. Add in the cranberries and raisins. Beat the egg and buttermilk together lightly and add to the other ingredients, stirring just until the dough forms. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead it lightly into a ball. Divide the ball into two, flatten each ball out into a round on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper--each round should be about 1/2-3/4" thick. Using a sharp knife, score each round into eighths, leaving the pieces together and taking care not to cut the parchment. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden--they are done when a toothpick inserted in the scone comes out clean. Let cool 5-10 minutes on a baking rack, then separate the sections with a sharp knife and serve with butter.

  • Very good! Not very sweet most of the sweetness comes from the fruit which I like. I reveresed the amounts of fruit though I made them with 1 cup of golden raisins and 1/4 cup cranberries because that was all the cranberries I had on hand. Yum! will make again - 6/10/10
