Applesauce Gingerbread Scone Recipe

We all like having something warm and comforting for breakfast in the cooler weather.  Family enjoys the treat of having something straight from the oven.  These scones will fill all your needs.  The usual scone is full of heavy cream and butter.  In these applesauce is used to replace part of the butter and low fat buttermilk is used to replace the cream.  I use spelt flour and whole wheat that is GMO free and organic.  The result is a scone that tastes decedent without the saturated fat content and has good for you whole grains.  Be sure to pin this to use all winter long!

Applesauce Gingerbread Scone Recipe

1/3 cup low fat buttermilk
1/3 cup sorghum molasses (you can use blackstrap if you wish)
3 tbsp. unsweetened applesauce
1 cup organic spelt flour (you can use all purpose)
1 cup organic stone ground whole wheat flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. ginger
1/4 tsp. cloves
1/4 tsp. salt
4 tbsp. cold butter, cut into small pieces

In a bowl mix together the buttermilk, molasses and applesauce, set aside.  In another bowl mix together the next eight ingredients, the spelt through the salt.  Using a pastry blender, two butter knives or your fingers, cut the butter into the dry ingredients until it resembles course meal.  Add the milk to the mixture and combine using a fork.  You want the dough to be smooth and soft.  Turn the dough out onto a surface dusted with more flour and knead 10 to 12 times.  Cut the dough into two separate pieces.  Place each piece of dough on a greased sheet pan and pat into a 5" circle (both pieces will fit on a large sheet pan).  Cut each circle into 6 equal wedges.  Don't separate the wedges.  Bake in a oven preheated to 425 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes or until hollow sounding when tapped.  Serve them up!

These scones travel well and reheat easily.  As a result it is a recipe to keep on hand for brunch gatherings or just for family.  Any time you choose to make them, I know you will enjoy them!  Get in the kitchen and have fun!
