Basic English Scones

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.
