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!

How to Make SCONES - created by Beth

Step-by-Step

  1. 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.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spray a baking sheet lightly with cooking oil.

    With a spatula place the wedges on the baking sheet evenly spaced and not touching. Bake for 14-15 minutes, on the middle shelf of the oven.
  3. They will be lightly browned on the bottom. Remove immediately from the baking pan and cool on a rack.
    Served warm they are fine with our without jam and a hot cup of coffee or tea!
