  • Combine flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg in a large bowl. Cut in shortening and mix until just a few chunks remain. Add buttermilk and vanilla extract; stir until combined.

  • Shape dough into individual scones, about 3 inches across and 1 inch thick. Arrange on the prepared baking sheet.

I had 1.5 cups of buttermilk on hand, so I adjusted the recipe accordingly, making 18 scones. Here are the other adjustments I made: *Used one stick of butter and 1/4 cup shortening in place of the artificially "butter-flavored" shortening. Seriously, I have no idea why anyone would use that stuff! *I froze the butter and grated it into the dry ingredients. I find this much easier and quicker than cutting in chunks of butter. *Substituted white whole wheat flour for 1/3 of the all purpose flour to add some extra fiber and flavor. *Reduced the brown sugar by about half and the spices by 1/3. *Plumped one cup of raisins in boiling water, drained and chilled them, then added to the dry ingredients before mixing in the buttermilk. *Brushed the tops with cream and sprinkled with sanding sugar before baking. The scones turned out very flavorful, not too sweet, and had a nice crumbly (but not dry) texture. Read More

I forgot to add the brown sugar, so added it after all other ingredients were already mixed. i liked how it gave a bit of a brown sugar glazed edge is spots, so next time, I will mix in 1/4 cup with the dry ingredients at the right time, but then add and mix in 1/4 cup of brown sugar after the fact.
