  • 4 tablespoon butter, unsalted
  • 4 medium orange
  • 2 cup flour, all-purpose
  • 1/3 cup flour, whole wheat
  • 4 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ
  • 4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup applesauce, unsweetened
  • 3 cup cranberries, dried
  • 2 tablespoon orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup milk


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Chop cold butter and set aside. Zest 2 oranges into a small dish and then cut those two in half and squeeze as much of the juice as possible into a separate dish. (The remaining oranges are to serve with baked scones).
  • In a large mixing bowl, stir together flours, sugar, wheat germ, baking powder, and salt. Then fold in applesauce and chopped butter. Stir until a course crumb forms. (Sometimes hands work best when doing this step).
  • Stir in dried cranberries and orange zest.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the vanilla, egg, milk, and the juice from the oranges.
  • Pour wet ingredients into the dry, and stir until you have a dough. Turn onto a floured surface and knead for a minute or two to make sure it is fully incorporated. Roll out into 1/2 inch thickness and cut into circles with a cookie or biscuit cutter.
  • Place scones 2 inches apart on a cookie sheet, and bake for 15-20 minutes or until browned.
  • Serve with orange wedges on the side.
