These scones take little time to prepare and are wonderfully moist with lots of flavor.—Bernadette Colvin, Tomball, Texas
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup toasted wheat germ
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 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.
  • 2. Turn onto a floured surface and knead gently 5-6 times. Gently pat dough into a 9-in. circle, about 1/2 in thick. Combine the topping ingredients; sprinkle over dough. Cut into eight wedges.
  • 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. Yield: 8 scones.

"The perfect scone - moist, but not dense. An almost rustic flavor with the toasted wheat germ. Not overly sweet, but definitely a winning combination. Great with my cup of coffee."
