Wow, I can't believe I haven't posted in a long time! We went on vacation in August to the beach here in NC=) It was amazing & much needed!
Then September consisted of preparing to move & moving!
Our new house = )
Onto the goodies now!
The other day I made these amazing scones that were so simple to make & very yummy!
Cranberry Orange Glazed Wheat Scones
Makes 15 scones
2 1/3 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup butter (soften)
1 cup sweetened dried cranberries (i.e. Craisins®)
2 tablespoons grated orange zest
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup orange juice ( I used fresh squeeze orange juice from oranges that I took off the zest from)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
In a large bowl, stir together the whole wheat flour, wheat germ, brown sugar, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. Mix in shortening until everything looks crumbly. Stir in the cranberries and orange zest. In a separate bowl, stir together the egg, milk and orange juice. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet mixture. Stir until dough forms. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead briefly to get the dough to hold together. Roll out to 1/2 inch thickness and cut into circles with a biscuit cutter. Place scones 2 inches apart on the baking sheet.
Bake in the preheated oven until the tops and bottoms are golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Serve warm.
Then after they baked, I took some fresh orange juice , added some sugar & boil it for about 5 mins & pour it over the scones! It sure was yummy!
Have a blessed Sunday,
Love never fails,
