 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/3   c            Unbleached all-purpose flour
      1/4   c            Firmly packed light brown
                         -sugar
    1       tb           Double-acting baking powder
      3/4   ts           Baking soda
    1       t            Salt
      3/4                Stick (6 Tbsp) cold unsalted
                         -butter, cut into bits
      2/3   c            Whole-wheat flour
      1/3   c            Miller’s bran (try a natural
                         -food store)
      3/4   c            Chopped walnuts
      2/3   c            Raisins
    1 1/2   tb           Freshly grated lemon rind
    1       lg           Egg
      1/2   c            Buttermilk
 
   *   egg wash, made by beating 1 large egg yolk with 1
   tsp water  * softened butter, assorted jams as
   accompaniments Into a bowl, sift together the
   unbleached flour, brown sugar, baking powder, soda &
   salt. Blend in the butter until mixture resembles
   coarse meal, and stir in the whole-wheat flour, bran,
   walnuts & raisins until the mixture is combined. In a
   small bowl, whisk together the rind, egg & buttermilk,
   add this mixture to the flour mixture and stir the
   mixture with a fork until it just forms a sticky but
   manageable dough. Knead the dough lightly on a floured
   surface for 30 seconds and pat it gently into a 3/4
   inch thick round. Cut out rounds with a 2 or 2-1/4
   inch cutter dipped in flour and arrange them on a
   buttered baking sheet. Form the scraps into a ball,
   pat into 3/4 inch thick round & repeat. Arrange the
   rounds on the baking sheet, brush the tops with the
   egg wash, and bake the scones in the middle of a
   pre-heated 400 degree oven for 15 - 17 minutes or
   until golden.  Serve the scones warm with the butter
   and jams. Per Serving: 230 calories, 5 gm protein, 30
