... taste delicious no matter what shape or form they come in. Serve warm...

1 cup organic stone-goround whole-wheat flour
1/2 cup organic all-purpose, unbleached flour
1 cup organic rolled oats
3 tbsp brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
7 tbsp cold organic salted butter
1 organic egg
1/2 cup organic milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup organic raisins, or blueberries, cranberries...
1/2 cup organic walnuts or nuts of choice (optional)

Preheat oven to 425ºF. Mix flours, baking powder and sugar in a mixer or by hand. Add butter cut into chunks... when well mixed, add milk, egg and vanilla. Lastly, mix in the oats, then dried fruit (or fresh berries) of choice, and nuts (optional).

Scoop out big tablespoonfuls of dough and place it on a baking stone (doesn't need to be preheated) or cookie sheet. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until golden (not brown!).

Don't forget to lick the bowl, spoon and mixer attachment- the batter is yummy! I use organic ingredients, fresh local eggs, and raw milk as much as possible. I also sometimes use heavy cream instead of milk. As for the flour mixture, I go anywhere from 100% whole-wheat to 100% all white, depending on whom I make the scones for. This is the ratio I use the most at home.
