Phony Sconeys

"It's not about you. It's not about your quality of life. It's not about your jobs," Santorum said. "It's about some phony ideal, some phony theology. Oh, not a theology based on the Bible. A different theology."

Phony Sconeys

You may find God in these light, biscuit-like delights...perfect for breakfast or afternoon tea discussing POLITICS!

1-1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup oats (regular or old fashioned)
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. Kosher salt
1/3 cup sugar, divided
1 stick butter, cut up
3/4 cup milk
1 egg
1/2 cup mixed dried fruit bits

Heat oven to 450ºF.  Add flour, oats, baking powder, salt and 1/4 cup sugar to work bowl of food processor.  Pulse until blended.  Add butter; pulse several times until mixture resembles coarse crumbs with a few larger lumps.  

Combine milk and egg.  Turn dry ingredients mixture into bowl and add milk and egg mixture and dried fruit.  Mix with spatula into a wet dough.  Turn dough onto heavily floured surface and knead a few times, then shape into an 8-inch disk about 1/2" thick.  Sprinkle with remaining sugar, then press sugar gently into dough with palm and cut into 8 wedges.  Transfer to parchment lined baking sheet with spatula.

Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until scones are lightly browned.

Substitute currants or raisins for mixed dried fruit bits.
