My family loves scones and anything with oatmeal. I started with my basic scone recipe and added oat flour to increase the oat taste and texture, then included special ingredients you can find in every bite. Look for add-ins that harmonize with the mellow flavor of oats. —Amy Brnger, Portsmouth, New Hampshire

  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter, cubed
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup dried cherries, chopped
  • 1/3 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans, toasted
  • 1 tablespoon coarse sugar
  • 1 tablespoon old-fashioned oats


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Whisk together first 7 ingredients; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add buttermilk, stirring just until moistened. Stir in cherries, chocolate chips and pecans.
  2. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet; pat into a 6-in. circle. Cut into 10 wedges, but do not separate. Sprinkle with coarse sugar and oats.
  3. Bake until golden brown, 20-25 minutes. Serve warm.
