The oat scones were buttery, fluffy and delicious, when we spread the apple-pear butter on top, the flavor was just amazing. Sweet, a bit sour and smooth apple-pear butter went deliciously well with these yummy scones.

Ingredients

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup rolled oats
3 tablespoons brown sugar
packed
¼ teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons butter
unsalted, cold cut into pieces
1 each eggs
½ cup light cream (half&half)
Apple pear butter
¼ pound dried apple slices
*
2 ounces dried pears
*
2 cups apple juice
unsweetened or pear juice
2 teaspoons cinnamon
ground
1 teaspoon allspice
ground
½ teaspoon cloves
ground
2 tablespoons butter, unsalted

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees; grease a baking sheet or line with parchment.

Combine the flour and oats in the workbowl of a food processor and process until the oats are ground.

In a medium bowl, combine the flour mixture, brown sugar, baking powder and salt.

Cut in the butter with a fork or a heavy-duty electric mixer until hte mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and half and half.

Add to the dry mixture and stir until a sticky dough is formed.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead about 6 times, just until the dough holds together.

Pat the dough into a ¾ inch thick round about 8 inches in diameter.

Cut out the scones with a 2-inch biscuit cutter to make 12 to 14 smaller scones.

Place the scones about 1 inch apart on the baking sheet.

Bake for 15 to 18 minutes until crusty and golden brown.

Serve immediately, split in half and spread with Apple-Pear Butter.

To make Apple-Pear Butter, combine the apples, pears, juice and spices in a heavy saucepan and bring to a boil.

Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook, uncovered, for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Remove from the heat, stir in the butter and cool.

Purée in a blender or food processor until smooth.

Scrape into a springtop glass jar and refrigerate until needed.

Makes about 2 cups, keeps for about 2 months.

Have to give this recipe 5 star. We had some dried apples and pears, and this recipe sounded a perfect fit.

The result was outstanding, the oat scones were buttery, fluffy and delicious, when we spread the apple-pear butter on top, the flavor was just amazing. Sweet, a bit sour and smooth apple-pear butter went deliciously well with these yummy scones.

Good for breakfast, snack, or a side dish. Definitely a keeper!
