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!

    Using a little pressure press on the dough and make a circle, fold over a third of it and continue doing this until all dry ingredients are incorporated. It will be moist but not sticky. Flatten and roll this into about a 10" circle. Using a long knife cut the circle in half, then cut into quarters, and then into twelve wedges.
