Whole Wheat Craisin Scones

25 Apr

Monday 5:50am. Stuck scones in the oven and dashed to shower while they baked… Ate 2 fresh scones on my way out and brought the rest in to work for my colleagues, making me– a Monday Morning HERO. Recipe based on this, but adapted.


  • 1 1/3 c flour
  • 2/3 c whole wheat flour
  • 2-3 tbsp sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 c cold butter
  • 1/2 c craisins
  • 3/4 c skim milk


  • Preheat to 425. Whisk all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
  • Cut butter into small chunks and mix into the flour mixture, using your hands, but try not to work it too much since you don’t want the butter to melt. Consistency should be coarse.
  • Stir in craisins. Then stir in milk until it keeps together, but don’t over-mix (especially since the overmixing the whole wheat flour makes it taste more leaden).
  • Flatten into a rectangle on a floured surface– about 1/2 in thick. These made ~12 small triangle scones. Place on parchment paper-lined baking sheet and bake for 15-20 min. OR layer with parchment paper in a tupperware to store in the fridge overnight, so you can be a Monday Morning HERO like me…
