Hazelnut Scones with Raspberry Salsa

Hazelnut Scones with Raspberry Salsa......because every now and then we need a little somethin' sweet with our herbal tea! :)

Serves 4
What You Need:
1 cup hazelnuts, coarsely chopped
2 cups flour
3 tablespoons non-hydrogenated margarine, softened
1-1/2 tablespoons light brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons soymilk

For the fruit salsa: 1 cup raspberries
1 lime, zested and juiced

What You Do:
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees and grease a baking sheet. In a heavy frying pan over medium heat, roast hazelnuts until golden.

2. In a bowl, sift flour and mix in margarine with your fingertips. Stir in sugar and salt, then use a knife to gradually mix in the soymilk. Lightly knead the mixture into a soft dough.

3. Roll the dough on a floured surface to 3/4-inch thick. Use a 2-inch round cutter to cut out about 15 scones, and place them on the baking sheet.

4. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until golden brown. In a large bowl, mash raspberries with lime juice. Break open freshly baked scones and spoon salsa inside. Sprinkle zest over salsa, and sandwich the scones back together.

Sweet, Homemade, and Cynfully Good..............
