Sweet scones that go perfectly with a cup of coffee

Ingredients:

  • 1
    cup
    all-purpose flour
  • ½
    cup
    old-fashioned rolled oats
    (not quick-cooking oats)
  • 2
    teaspoons
    baking powder
  • ½
    teaspoon
    salt
  • ½
    teaspoon
    ground cinnamon
  • 1
    egg
  • ¼
    cup
    canola or vegetable oil
  • ¼
    cup
    granulated sugar
  • ¼
    cup
    honey
  • 2
    tablespoons
    heavy cream
  • 1
    cup
    diced figs
    (fresh or dried)

Directions:

  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. 2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
  3. 3. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg and canola oil together. Add the honey and mix until combined. Pour the liquid mixture into the dry ingredients and fold together with a rubber spatula to combine. Add the cream and mix together (the dough will be a little wet). Cover the diced figs with the sugar and gently fold into the dough.
  4. 4. On a well-floured surface, and dusting the top of the dough with more flour, pat the dough out into a 7-inch circle. Cut into 8 triangles. Place on the prepared baking sheet.
  5. 5. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until lightly golden brown. Serve warm or at room temperature. Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container, but they are best the same day they are made.
