Another version of the popular British/Scottish scone. Some call it bread, some call it dessert, but no matter what you call it, it is scrumptious!

Ingredients

1
egg yolk
1 pinch
granulated sugar
2/3 c
whole wheat flour
4 tsp
baking powder
1/3 c
butter
3/4 c
mashed potatoes
1/4 c
white sugar
1/8 tsp
nutmeg
1 tsp
salt
3/4 c
milk
1 2/3 c
all purpose flour
1
egg white, lightly beaten
1
whole egg
1/3 c
raisins or candied mixed fruit

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large bowl, combine flours, salt, baking powder, 1/4 cup sugar and nutmeg. Cut in butter until mixture is the consistency of cornmeal. Stir in raisins or fruit.
2
In a medium bowl, combine potato, whole egg, yolk, and milk. Whisk until no lumps remain. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add liquid all at once. Stir with a fork to make a soft, slightly sticky dough. If necessary add 1-2 Tbsp. more milk.
3
Press lightly into a ball and knead gently on a floured surface about six times. Roll out dough to 1/2 inch thickness; cut into triangles. Place on an ungreased baking sheet and brush with slightly beaten egg white and sprinkle with a pinch of sugar.
4
Bake in a preheated 450-degree oven for 13-15 minutes or until golden. Serve with butter or jam.
