1/2 cup AP flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8  teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg or cinnamon
3 1/2 tablespoons butter, unsalted, cold, cut into bits
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup dried fruit
3 tablespoons buttermilk
orange zest, optional

Preheat oven to 400°

mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices (as always, whole wheat flour can be used, but the end result will not be as tender, only healthier)
cut butter into flour mixture
add dried fruit, zest and oats
sprinkle in buttermilk and mix with a fork until dough comes together
turn mixture onto floured work surface and kneed until it sticks together
pat into plate shape approximately 1 inch thick, and cut into wedges
sprinkle with sugar (you may have to dap the top with milk or water to get the sugar to stick)

bake for 15 minutes
