These hearty scone drops are best served warm. Apples and golden raisins add a subtle sweetness.
Heat oven to 400°F. Lightly grease baking sheets; set aside.
Combine oats, flour, 1/2 cup brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in bowl; stir until well mixed. Cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in all remaining scone ingredients until well mixed.
Drop batter by 1/4 cupfuls, 2 inches apart, onto prepared baking sheets. Slightly flatten each mound. Sprinkle with brown sugar, if desired.
Bake 12-15 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove to cooling racks.
Combine powdered sugar and enough water for desired drizzling consistency in bowl; drizzle over warm scones. Serve warm.
*Substitute 2 teaspoons vinegar or lemon juice and enough milk to equal 3/4 cup. Let stand 5 minutes.

Very tasty scone, though mine came out a bit flat because I forgot to add the egg (d'oh)!. There are two main tricks to making delicious, moist scones: make sure your ingredients are very cold, and work fast. Don't worry if the butter isn't completely, uniformly incorporated into the ingredients-- having a few lumps makes the final product taste better.In addition to the forgotten egg, I also didn't add golden raisins or do the drizzle on top, I used white sugar instead of brown, and I used a Granny Smith apple instead of the recommended sort. They were still quite lovely. They tasted, in my opinion, more like a breakfast scone than a dessert.
I saw this recipe in my local newspaper and decided to give it a try. The dough seemed a little loose, but I went ahead and baked it any way. I was very disappointed with how the scones spread out like a thick cookie. I have only ever made scones that are shaped into a large round and then cut into triangles, so I don't know if this is how the scones were to turn out.. They tasted OK not impressed with how they baked. I checked the web site to see if maybe the newspaper had misprinted the recipe, but they did not.
