Cherry Walnut Scones

I'm a big fan of scones and these are great! They make great hostess gifts too!

1 cup flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 tablespoons wheat germ
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup canola oil, scant
3/4 cup low fat milk
1 tablespoon vinegar
2 teaspoons vanilla
3/4 cup dried cherries
1/4 cup walnuts
1 tablespoon coarse sugar or raw sugar

In mixing bowl, combine flours, sugar, baking powder, wheat germ and salt. Add canola oil; mix well with pastry blender or fork, until mixture forms small crumbs. Combine milk and vinegar in another bowl. When slightly thickened, add vanilla. Add milk mixture to flour mixture, stirring just until blended. Do not over mix. Dough will be sticky. Stir in cherries and walnuts. Drop by tablespoon onto a greased baking sheet. Sprinkle tops with coarse sugar. Bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes, or until scones are lightly browned on top and golden on the bottom. Cool and store in covered container. Makes 12-14 scones.
