Cherry Apple Scones
1 1/2 cups All-purpose flour -- unbleached
3/4 cup Whole wheat flour
3 tablespoons Granulated sugar
2 teaspoons Baking powder
1/2 teaspoon Baking soda
1 Egg white
3/4 cup Unsweetened applesauce -- plus
2 tablespoons Unsweetened applesauce
1/3 cup Dried cherries
Skim milk -- -or 1 beaten egg white
Preheat oven to 375 degrees; coat a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
Combine the flours, sugar, baking powder and baking soda; stir to mix well. Stir
in the egg white and just enough of the applesauce to form a stiff dough. Stir
in the dried cherries. Form the dough into a ball and turn onto a lightly
floured surface. With floured hands, pat the dough into a 7-inch circle. Place
the dough on the baking sheet and use a sharp floured knife to cut it into 12
wedges. Pull the wedges out slightly to leave a 1/2-inch space between them.
Brush the tops lightly with skim milk or beaten egg white. Bake for about 20
minutes, or until lightly browned. Transfer to a serving plate and serve hot
with cherry fruit spread or apple jelly.
