Description

A different twist on scones with a lemon flavor. Good with any topping or just plain.

Ingredients
  • 2 cups oat flour
  • 1 ¼ cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup shortening
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons poppy seeds
  • ⅔ cup buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
Directions
  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. 2. In a large bowl, stir together the oat flour, whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Cut in shortening and 1/2 cup of butter until the lumps are smaller than peas. Stir in the lemon zest and poppy seeds. Make a well in the center and pour in the buttermilk. Stir just until the dry ingredients are moistened.
  3. 3. Divide the dough into 2 pieces. Pat each one into a 1 inch thick circle. Cut circles into 6 wedges like a pie. Place pieces onto a baking sheet, and brush the tops with melted butter.
  4. 4. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack so they do not get too crumbly.
