Spelt Scones


2 1/4 cups whole grain spelt flour
1/2 cup raw organic cane sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons butter
1 egg
1/2 cup organic buttermilk (or organic unsweetened soy milk works great!)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup chocolate chips or berries

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl. Add the butter and with a pastry blender or two knives cut the butter in until it is well combined or resembles course crumbs. In a sperate bowl stir together the egg, buttermilk and vanilla. Add to the flour mixture and gently combine. Form the dough into 8 balls (I shaped mine into triangle shapes) and place on baking sheet at least 2 inches apart (they expand!). Bake until golden brown about 15 minutes. Enjoy!

These are as good as you promised! I mixed in mini-chocolate chips and am only baking 4 today. I'll freeze 4 unbaked to have fresh this weekend. Keep the recipes coming, Anna!

Thanks Beth! Next you'll need to try them with fresh chopped fruit. I love the idea of freezing them unbaked. Great idea. -Anna
