Scone-appetit!


Into a bowl they go:
2 cups  whole wheat flour (organic is best)
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt

Lightly whisk to blend.

Cut in only 2 tbsp. butter
With a pastry blender or your fingertips!
Until the mix looks like coarse crumbs.

Stir in 1 cup fresh chopped cranberries or dried...
and 1 cup chopped walnuts.

Add 1/2 cup non-fat milk and mix until moistened.

Pour onto a floured surface, knead gently.
Pat into two 1/2 inch thick rounds.
Cur each round into 8 wedges .

Bake on lightly sprayed cookie sheet.
Sprinkle with sugar if desired.
Bake 15-18 mins.

These wonderful scones satisfy a sweet tooth without a lot of calories or fat!
For you Weight Watcher Gals...they are only 3 points each!
And using Organic ingredients is even better!

Pop one in the toaster for a quick snack!


This little glass jar is a darling & simple "cranberry craft"
Add a ribbon with some cinnamon sticks.
Paint the lid and add a wooden ball for accent!

Make your scones half size, fill it up and give as a gift!

What a perfect recipe for those of us struggling with the lack of sweets since the beginning of the new year. So healthy with the whole wheat flour and fruit. I love it!

Joyce said...

Only 3 points? Well I guess after I add the lemon curd and the cream I should probably put a zero after the 3 for 30 points:) I copied the recipe and plan to make these for sure because I like 3 points to help me get rid of 3 pounds!
