Golden Scones

1 3/4 cup wheat flour
2 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon baking powder
1 to 3 tablespoon sugar
2 to 4 tablespoon KAL nutritional yeast flakes or wheat germ
1/2 teaspoon orange/ lemon zest or baking spice; (see tips)
4 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup minced dried fruits or raisins; optional
2 large eggs, beaten
1/3 cup evaporated milk, cream, buttermilk or 1/2&1/2
1/3 cup dried fruits (optional, added when shaping)
1 tablespoon coarse sugar or cinnamon sugar (optional for topping) --- OR glaze made with 1 tablespoon lemon or orange juice and about 1/2 C powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. These will bake about 14 minutes, till the bottoms are just brown (they brown before the tops). Butter or PAM a 10 inch round glass pie pan or a cookie sheet.

Stir together all the dry ingredients, and the spice or zest.

Spice Tip: Baking spices are ground cinnamon or cardmon or nutmeg, pie spice, etc. If you are serving with savory foods you can omit the sugar, use thyme, dill, or other dry green herbs, and top later with Parmesan cheese instead of sugar.

Then work in the butter with your fingers until it is a coarse crumb, but not melted. (I use a coarse kitchen grater to grate in frozen butter and then rub it together very quickly).

After the butter is blended, holding back 1 T beaten egg for the topping, stir the rest of the beaten egg into the milk. The total volume of liquid, including substitutions, should be 3/4 cup. Pour the liquid into the middle of the dry ingredients, stir a few turns with the spatula, just till all the flour is thoroughly moist. If this is very crumbly and you think "too dry", it is just right.
