Yield: 12 Servings
|2 cups||All-Purpose Flour|
|¼ cup||Light Brown Sugar|
|1 teaspoon||Baking Powder|
|1 teaspoon||Cream Of Tartar|
|¾ cup||Lowfat Buttermilk|
|1½ teaspoon||Canola Oil, *Note|
|1 tablespoon||Nonfat Milk, For Brushing Tops|
*NOTE: Original recipe used 1 T canola oil.
Preheat oven to 350 deg F. Lightly oil a baking sheet or coat it with nonstick cooking spray. (I used a nonstick baking sheet liner.) In a large bowl, whisk flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cream of tartar and salt. In another bowl, stir together buttermilk, currants and oil. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and gradually stir in the buttermilk mixture.
On a lightly floured surface, pat or roll the dough into a round about ½" thick. With a long knife, cut the round into 12 wedges and transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Brush the tops with milk. Bake for 15 - 20 min, or until golden brown. Serve warm. Makes 1 dozen scones.
These were extremely easy to make and tasted wonderful.
