Recipe Ingredients for Apple-Walnut Scones

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup dried apple, chopped
1/2 cup walnut, chopped
1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Recipe Directions for Apple-Walnut Scones

  1. Preheat oven to 400.

  2. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and the next 4 ingredients (flour through salt), and cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in the apples and walnuts. Combine the buttermilk and eggs, stirring with a whisk. Add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist (dough will be sticky).

  3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead lightly 4 times. Pat dough into a 9-inch circle on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Cut dough into 12 wedges, cutting into but not through dough. Combine 2 teaspoons sugar and cinnamon, and sprinkle over dough. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes or until golden. Serve warm.
