Introduction

Scones are perfect for weekend house guests, hostess gifts or picnics. Traditionally made with loads of butter and cream, mine use far less butter--and wheat flour.

Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    4 tablespoons unsalted butter
    1/3 cup sugar
    2 eggs, beaten
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/4 cup evaporated nonfat milk
    zest of 1 lemon
    3 cups white whole wheat flour
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1 1/4 cups frozen raspberries





Tips

Sprinkle a tablespoon of raw sugar on top of the scones for added crunch and sweetness.


Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone liner.

Using an electric mixer, cream the butter in a mixing bowl for 3 minutes. Slowly add the sugar and mix for 2 more minutes. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl to make sure all the sugar and butter have mixed thoroughly.

Mix in the eggs, then add the vanilla, evaporated milk, and lemon zest.

Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix just until combined. Gently stir in the raspberries.

Turn the dough onto the lined baking pan. Form into an 8-inch circle and cut into 12 equal wedges or biscuits. Separate the wedges/biscuits and allow 1/2 inch space between each one.

Bake for 20-25 minutes until the tops are lightly browned.

Enjoy warm or cooled.


Serving Size: Makes 12 scones.

    WHITE whole wheat flour? Isn't that just regular flour in the end? If it is the whole grain of wheat, it can't be white, can it?
    I'll definitely make these, but will stick to natural whole wheat flour.

    White whole wheat flour is a variety of whole wheat made from a lighter-colored wheat. It looks like white flour but has all the nutrition of whole wheat flour. It has a slightly lighter texture than regular whole wheat flour, you could certainly sub that.

    I substituted blueberries instead and ORANGE zest is an excellent alternative to lemon :) - 6/24/12

    Just a comment to expound on the white whole wheat flour...the more 'common' whole wheat flour is produced from wheat known as "hard red wheat'. There are two other kinds often seen...a hard white & a soft white. The hard is great for breads and less bitter or strong tasting than the red. - 6/19/12

    Great recipe! I did use 1/2 C less of flour and tried the tip of "sugar in the raw" on the top of the scones. I sprinkled it on the scones just before they finished baking, turned the oven off and left the door open to "set" the sugar for 10 minutes. - 8/17/12

    I used blueberries like lots of other people. I used 1 cup of whole wheat flour and 2 cups of all-purpose four. Turned out very nice. - 7/24/12
