Agave Scones

From

Cooking Time:

15 minutes

Yield:

Makes 8 scones

Ingredients

  • 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 5 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup organic light agave nectar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup dried cranberries or raisins

Directions

This is a great scone recipe because they come out not too sweet and more moist than your typical scone.  Agave nectar is a liquid sweetener that is made from the nectar of a plant called the Blue Agave.

Preheat oven to 400*.  Lightly grease a baking sheet and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt.  Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  In a smaller bowl, mix egg, agave nectar and milk; stir into flour mixture until moistened.  Do not over mix.

Turn dough onto lightly floured surface and knead until smooth.  Knead in cranberries or raisins until just combined.  Roll dough into a 1/2-inch disk and cut into 8 wedges.  Place on prepared baking sheet.  Bake approximately 15 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into center comes clean.  Remove from oven.  Place scones on wire rack to cool.

Makes 8 scones.
