While reading a post of tea rooms I was beginning to craved some scones. I wanted to try a different recipe that was easier than my last batch. This one has less ingredients and it takes less time to make it. I even found a helpful site for scones (5 Tips on Baking The Perfect Scones)
Here are the ingredients needed for this recipe:
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tsp. baking powder (or 1 tsp. cream of tartar and 1/2 tsp. baking soda)
- 1 pinch of salt
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter, frozen
- 3 Tbsp. sugar
- 1/2 cup milk (+ 2 Tbsp for glaze)
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 425°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Step 2: In a large bowl, sift the flour, baking powder, and salt together.
Step 3: Grate the butter into the flour mixture and mix.
Step 4: Add in the sugar and stir until combined.
Step 5: Gently mix in the milk until a soft dough forms (I had to add another 1/4 – 1/2 cup, the batter was to dry)
Step 6: Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface.
Step 7: Roll out dough to 1/2-inch thickness.
Step 8: Cut into 2-inch rounds and place onto the prepared baking sheet.
Step 9: Brush tops with milk to glaze.
Step 10: Bake for 10 minutes. (Bottoms should be lightly golden brown)
Step 11: Cool on wire racks.
