Alexa’s Favorite Scones

Alexa's Favorite Scones Recipe

While growing up, Sundays were the “special food” days. Pancakes or waffles for breakfast and a “dress-up” dinner, either at home or at my grandparents’ house. I make these scones often as Sunday breakfast treats. And of course, I can’t help myself, I play with the ingredients, adding nuts, substituting different dried fruits for the raisins—or even cinnamon or chocolate chips. Alexa’s favorite scones appear in Ms. Longshot. Of course, hers are store-bought.

Course Bread
Servings 8 scones


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/4 cups rolled oats
  • 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cups whole-wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup raisins, or dried fruit of choice
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • 2 tablespoon walnut oil, or any light oil


  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Melt butter in microwave.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the oats, flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir in raisins and make a well in the center of the dry ingredients.
  • Combined the melted butter, egg, yogurt and oil and add to the dry ingredients, stirring until just moistened.
  • Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead several times to form a ball. Pat the ball into an 8-inch circle and cut into 8 wedges.
  • Place the wedges on a lightly oiled baking sheet. If you’re feeling fancy, brush some yogurt on top of the scones and sprinkle with raw sugar or nuts. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until firm to the touch. Transfer to rack and cool slightly. Serve warm.
