Sunday Brunch: Warm Cinnamon Scone Recipe
Yield: 8 scones.
Scone Recipe Ingredients:
2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup toasted wheat germ
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/3 cup cold butter
1 large tart apple, peeled and chopped

Scone Recipe Directions:
1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, wheat germ, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and nutmeg. Cut in the butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine the apple, milk and honey; add to dry ingredients just until moistened.

3. Separate wedges and place 1 in. apart on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 15-18 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm.
