Christmas Scones

I saw this recipe for Whole Wheat Biscuits on Super Healthy Kids and thought it would be a good one to make with Oscar for Christmas.  It was only as I was making it that I realised “biscuit” in America means scone in Australia.  As scones they turned out pretty well, and better than scones they weren’t rock hard the next day and refreshed nicely after a few seconds in the microwave.  I didn’t make them as high as the original recipe and I didn’t find them to be crumbly either, I had a very nice scone dough – maybe the translation to Australian ingredients made the difference.  Oscar had great fun kneading, rolling and cutting, and of course eating!  Being Christmas time we made ginger bread men, Christmas trees, stars and dog (!) shapes.
