Ingredients

Scones

  • 2/3 cup Fiber OneTM Original cereal
  • 1/3 cup halved dried mission figs
  • 2/3 cup orange juice
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup cold butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/3 cup pecan pieces
  • 1 cup heavy cream

Glaze (optional):

  • 10 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice

Instructions

 

  1. Combine cereal, halved dried figs and orange juice in a large bowl; microwave on HIGH 1 minute. Let stand 10-15 minutes or until all juice is absorbed.
  2. Whisk together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Using your fingers, a pastry cutter or a fork, cut butter pieces into flour mixture until it resembles coarse meal; stir in pecans. Add heavy cream and cereal mixture; combine to form dough.
  3. Gently pat dough out onto a well-floured surface, forming an 8-inch round. Refrigerate dough for 30 minutes. 
  4. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Transfer dough to a Silpat lined or greased baking sheet. Using a large knife, cut dough into 8 triangles and separate slightly. 
  5. Bake for 25 minutes or until browned and cooked through. Remove from oven and gently transfer to a wire rack to cool. If desired, combine powdered sugar and orange juice; spoon over scones.
