 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/4  Teaspoon      Salt -- optional
    2      Cups          All-Purpose Flour
      1/3  Cup           Margarine -- chilled
      2/3  Cup           Wheat germ
    1 1/4  Cups          Apples -- finely chopped
    2      Teaspoons     Baking powder
                         (1 large apple)
    1      Tsp           Ground cinnamon
      1/2  c             Skim milk
      1/4  tsp           Ground nutmeg
      1/4  c             Honey
      1/4  tsp           Baking soda
                         -----TOPPING-----
    1      tbsp          Wheat germ
      1/4  tsp           Ground cinnamon
    1      tbsp          Sugar
 
 Heat oven 400 degrees.  Lightly spray large cookie sheet with nonstick
 cooking spray or grease lightly. Handle the dough gently. Over mixing
 scones can make them tough. Combine flour, wheat germ, baking powder,
 spices, baking soda and salt (if using).  Cut in margarine until mixture
 resembles coarse crumbs.  Add combined apple, milk and honey, mixing just
 until dry ingredients are moistened. Turn dough out onto lightly floured
 surface; knead gently 5 to 6 times.  Pat dough into 9-inch circle. Mix
 together topping ingredients. Sprinkle over dough. Cut dough into 10
 wedges.  Place 1/2-inch apart on prepared cookie sheet. Bake 16 to 18
 minutes or until light golden brown.
