Original Recipe: Maple-Oatmeal Scones
In a burst of baking I did 2 recipes I had marked on the Internet over the last few weeks. These Maple-Oatmeal Scones looked like a great recipe to try so I dove right in.
First, this makes a pretty large batch of scones. The recipe calls for cutting them into 3-inch rounds, but I find cutting them into squares much easier. It also insures you use all the dough. I hate wasting food. (LAUGH)
I also added 1 1/2 cups of dried cranberries to the finished dough. I had a huge bag in the kitchen left over from some other recipes and it felt like a good addition here.
Finally, instead of glazing the scones I dressed them with some Maui brown sugar I had (a gift from a friend). This saved some time in the process and also saves some calories in these, already rich, scones.
