Christmas Scones

December 24, 2009

2 C all-purpose, unbleached flour

1/4 C oats

2T flaxseed meal

2 1/2 t baking powder

1/2t kosher salt

1/2t baking soda

1/4 C sugar

6T cold, unsalted butter

1/2 cinnamon chips

1 egg

1/2 C sour cream

1t vanilla

whole milk or half & half

Christmas sprinkles

Preheat oven to 425. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Pulse dry ingredients in food processor then add in butter (cut into 1T slices). Pulse until mixture looks like coarse meal. Put in bowl and stir in cinnamon chips. In a separate bowl mix egg, sour cream and vanilla. Add to dry ingredients and stir until a dough forms–knead a few times to bring it together. If mixture is too dry, add whole milk or half & half (or anything other than low-fat milk) by 1T increments until dough can be kneaded into a cohesive ball. Flatten ball into a disk about 1 inch thick. Sprinkle with Christmas sprinkles and press gently into the dough, just enough to stick. Cut into 10 wedges and lay on baking sheet. Bake until just starting to turn golden, about 10 minutes.

Merry Christmas!
