From Whisk and a Prayer


Number of Servings: 10


    1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour (about 5 oz)
    1 cup whole wheat flour (about 4 3/4 ounces)
    1/4 cup sugar
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    1/4 cup chilled butter
    1 1/2 cup shredded peeled apple (about 2 medium apples)
    1/2 cup 1% low-fat milk (I used unsweetened Almond Milk which has even less calories!)
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    2 tablespoons low-fat milk
    2 teaspoons sugar


Preheat oven to 425. Lightly spoon flours into dry measuring cups and tablespoons; level with a knife. Or use a kitchen scale and weigh it out.

Combine flours, 1/4 cup sugar, and next 5 ingredients (through nutmeg) in a large bowl; stir with a whisk. Grate in butter (chill your butter well and use your cheese grater, so much easier than cutting into small pieces then cutting into flour).

Mix in a bit with a fork or pastry cutter until mixture resembles coarse meal.

Add apple, 1/2 cup milk, and vanilla extract, stirring just until moist (dough will be sticky).
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead lightly 4 times with floured hands.
Divide dough in half; pat each portion into a 6-inch circle on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.

Cut each circle into 5 wedges, cutting into but not through, dough. Brush tops of wedges with 2 tablespoons milk, and sprinkle evenly with 2 teaspoons sugar (I added some cinnamon too).

Bake at 425 for 15 minutes or until golden.

Serve warm.
