Wendy's Welsh Scones - 2 Points

Dom over at Belleau Kitchen has a new challenge involving your first cookbook. Mine is a hippie-inspired volume called Loaves and Fishes (which I will tell you more about when my life slows down enough for me to actually take on the challenge). I took it down in order to begin the challenge; while flipping through it's pages I found an old favorite that would be perfect to make with a little helper. 

Here are all of the ingredients set out on the table for Simon to dump into the mixing bowl. 

He was a fabulous chef and greatly enjoyed the pouring, mixing, and spooning out. He also greatly enjoyed the fruits of his labor. In fact, after he ate an aunt sanctioned cookie, he pulled a chair up to the cabinet and had a second, unapproved cookie in his mouth faster than I could grab him. I couldn't really blame him. They are slightly sweet, dense, packed with nature's candy - delicious, plump raisins. 

Wendy's Welsh Scones
1 cup white flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup brown sugar Splenda
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp butter
3/4 cup raisins
1 egg
1/2 cup light soy milk
1. In a large bowl, mix all ingredients save raisins.
2. Add raisins and mix.  
3. Drop dough by tablespoons full on a stone or greased cookie sheet.
4. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. 
5. Yields 24, 2 point servings

Here are the lovely scones themselves...

And here is the cutie assistant on a trip to the park. 


  1. These would be a great breakfast! I love that you put the WW points with your recipes. I'm thinking about joining and this is helpful! :)

  2. They are a great breakfast food:) I am so glad this is helpful to you. That makes me so happy! Thank you.

  3. oh wow, they are so sweet!... what a lovely recipe... and I love that book, brilliant stuff, can't wait to see what you make!... xx

  4. That's a nice healthy cookie, too!
    My first cookbook made me stop and think. It's been a while, but I think the very first one was Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook. Long gone, of course.

  5. Aww adorable! The scones look delicious and yes, raisins are nature's candy. Probably why I keep eating them as such.

  7. I am definatly going to make these, Yum!

  8. These look yummy! A couple questions... Can I use regular milk instead of soy milk? Also, you may have answered this in an earlier post... but do you calculate using the old or new point system?

    P.S. Thanks for checking out my blog and leaving such a kind comment! :-)

  9. Your cookies or scones look really good!. Love your little helper there. Nice to have the help in making and consuming too ... after all why else would you make such good looking cookies - right?

  10. You made it with soy milk - what a grand idea - it is healthy and does add a tad more sweetness without being cloying. Can I stop at just one?

  11. They sound so tasty! I love the last photo, so cute :-)

  12. These look delicious!!!

    PS I love your stoneware...It has so much character and is very well used..Love it!!!

    Mehjabeen - Thank you very much.
    Sylvia - I hope you enjoy them.
    EclecticMama- You could certainly use regular milk. I use Points Plus (the new ones).
    Chris - Thank you. He is a fab sous chef.
    Claudia - No, I don't think so. I had three.
    Maria - Thank you.
    Katie - I'm so pleased you noticed the stonewear. I have a mild obsession with it that would grow if I made more money.
