Oatmeal Scones

Oatmeal Scones can be eaten anytime of the day.  They go with an egg for breakfast, fit in at brunch or go with a cup of tea in the afternoon.  Oatmeal is known to aid in heart health; making these a better choice than a standard scone.  Though these do contain some sugar, it is brown sugar.  While you want to watch your intake of brown sugar as well as white, it does have some nutritional value that white sugar does not.  All I know is that it makes these scones something you will make again and again.

Oatmeal Scones

1 Cup Steel Cut Oats
1 Cup Spelt flour (unbleached all purpose flour can be used)
1/2 tsp. Cream of Tartar
1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
4 Tbsp. Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Butter
1 Egg
1/4 Cup Milk

Combine first five ingredients, oats through sugar, in a bowl.  Stir to combine.  Cut butter into chunks add to dry ingredients.  Using a pastry cutter; cut in butter until distributed throughout mixture and mixture is crumbly.  Add egg to milk and whisk lightly to combine.  Add egg milk mixture to oat mixture and stir to form dough.  Divide dough in half.  Spray a cookie sheet with non stick spray and pat each part of dough into a round about 3/4 of an inch thick.  Cut through the dough rounds to make each into four wedges.  Do not separate.  Bake in a preheated oven at 450 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown.  Brake into wedges and enjoy.

Make these for yourself and let me know how you like them.
