Original recipe makes 12 scones Change Servings


  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray.
  2. In large bowl, combine flour, oats, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, baking powder and salt; mix well. Cut in butter with pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In small bowl, combine milk, egg and vanilla; blend well. Add to dry ingredients all at once; stir with fork or rubber spatula until dry ingredients are moistened. In small bowl, combine remaining 2 tablespoons granulated sugar with the pecans and cinnamon; mix well. Sprinkle evenly over dough in bowl; gently stir batter to swirl in cinnamon mixture (Do not blend completely.) Drop dough by 1/4 cupfuls 2 inches apart on cookie sheet.
  3. Bake 11 to 13 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire rack; cool 5 minutes. In small bowl, combine powdered sugar and enough orange juice for desired consistency; mix until smooth. Drizzle over top of warm scones. Serve warm.

We Just Love scones and oatmeal always adds nice flavour. Especially nice these fall days ahead. A hot pot of tea along with it sounds just right.(Or Coffee if you favor, :O)

These weren't the best scones I've had but they were really easy to make, and they were good. I'll probably make them again.

Wonderful recipe! Definately will make this again. The taste and texture was excellent and very easy. The only thing I did different was I used self rising flour and omited the baking powder and I patted the dough into a 7" round circle and cut into 8 wedges. Very Very good :)

Excellent. Very tasty, moist and delicious. Easy to put together. There is one glitch in the recipe. In the directions section combining ingredients, it reads ...1/4 cup sugar, that should read 1/2 cup. Otherwise you end up with a 1/4 cup left over. Also, I found it impossible to get them all on one sheet, I needed two.

I have made these scones many times over the last several years. The only time they didn't turn out well was when I tried to make them as mini scones, freezing them to bake later. However, that is my fault, not the recipes. One note though- several reviewers have referred to these scones as healthy. Look at the nutrition information: Scones are basically sweetened biscuits. If you make 12 scones as the recipe indicates, each contains 292 calories and 12.8 grams of fat. These are wonderful for an occasional treat; they are not health food.

I am not a very good pastry cook, but these came out wonderful. I used a metal potato masher to mix the butter with the dry ingredients and it worked pretty well. I also added a little vanilla to the glaze... I love vanilla.

these were very tasty, plus felt a little healthier/heartier because they contain oatmeal. I will make these again.
