Walnut Oat Scones

I am SOO excited for fall. Why am I so excited? BAKING!!! I love scones, cakes, cookies- well, everything. I will begin posting all of my baking recipes. Here is a classic from last winter. I encourage you to make this---AND--- invite me over for scones and coffee.

Walnut Oat Scones

    2 tbs vegan  margarine
    1 3/4 cup rolled oats
    3/4 all-purpose white flour
    3/4 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
    3/4 cup sugar
    1 tbs baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup chopped walnuts
     1/2 cup sour soy milk (add 1 teaspoon vinegar)
    2 tbs canola oil


Preheat oven to 425F; spray cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray, or parchment paper or my new favorite: silpat pad!!

Combine dry ingredients and walnuts in a large bowl. Melt margarine and combine in a small bowl with soymilk, and oil; add to dry ingredients and stir until just mixed.

Turn dough onto lightly floured surface and knead a few times to form into a ball; flatten dough into an 8-in.-diameter circle and cut into eight wedges.

Put wedges on cookie sheet and bake 12 to 15 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool slightly on rack.

These are best eaten right away!
