In honor of John the Baptist I am going all health nut on you guys.
Peachy Good Scones
1/2 cup coconut shortening
1 cup organic whole wheat flour
1 cup organic unbleached all purpose flour
1/2 cup organic oats
1 tablespoon baking powder (aluminum free)
1/4 teaspoon natural unbleached sea salt
1 teaspoon organic cinnamon
1/3 cup organic turbinado sugar
1 cup organic fresh or frozen peaches, cut into 1/2 in. cubes
1/3 cup organic half-n-half or whole milk
1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Put your coconut shortening in the freezer for about 20 minutes. So it gets the consistency of a stick of butter. Don't remove from freezer until you are ready to use it.
Line baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with cooking spray.
Add in your fruit and pulse about 3 times. Do not over mix.
Pour in your milk and pulse until dough forms.
Turn out onto floured surface and roll into about 1/2 thick.
Sprinkle some turbinado sugar on top and cut as if you were cutting a pizza.
Place triangles on lined baking sheet and bake in 400 degree oven for 12 to 15 minutes.
Now celebrate that you are eating something that is good for you, by using your good dishes!
