SCONES - created by Beth

I have substituted items with great results and they are softer and satisfying. While hoping to cut the fat, add a small amount of sweetness, and improve the texture, I used three different ingredients than I have in the past when making scones: whole wheat white flour, low-fat cottage cheese and honey.
They are not the typical full of butter kind, but I love these with coffee for breakfast. Using up things that are in the refrigerator or kitchen cabinet too, is rewarding!
