About the Recipe

Tea time anyone? The scones are sweetened with the "smarter sweetener" a.k.a maple syrup while whole wheat flour provide an extra boost of fiber.

Ingredients

Preparation

Step 1 Heat oven to 375°F.

Step 2 Combine flour, whole wheat flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt in large bowl; cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Step 3 Combine half & half and egg in small bowl until smooth. Stir egg mixture into flour mixture just until moistened. Stir in currants.

Step 4 Turn dough onto lightly floured surface; knead 4 to 5 times until smooth, adding more flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, if necessary.

Step 5 Divide dough in half. Pat each half into 7-inch circle on large greased baking sheet. Score each half into 8 wedges. (Do not separate.)

Step 6

Brush tops with half of maple syrup. Bake 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Brush with remaining maple syrup. Cut into wedges. Serve warm.
