Have you ever had a warm, fresh from the oven scone? It's truly a delectable treat that can up your meal game. I don't think there's anything I enjoy more than a warm scone with a cup of coffee and my favorite jam. My favorite jam is blackberry with the seeds in it. I couldn't find it with the seeds in it at my grocery store. Weird, right? I feel like it's usually the opposite problem!
A scone is kind of like an oddly shaped biscuit. The awesome thing about this recipe is that you can add really anything to this recipe to make it a different flavor. So if you were feeling fancy and wanted to add some chocolate chips you totally could. Or raisins, but who likes raisins? I don't think I've eaten a raisin on purpose since elementary school.
The thing I'm really most excited about is the amount. This is the perfect, PERFECT, amount to make two scones. That's right, a two scone recipe! There were no leftovers for me. You also could share, I suppose, but you know how hard it is to share sometimes. This will be one of those times.
Oh yeah, did I mention it's a sweet recipe? There's sugar in this so you get a hint of sweetness in every bite. So let's get to it!
- 1/2 Cup and 2 Tablespoons All Purpose Flour
- 1/2 Teaspoon and 1/4 Teaspoon Baking Powder
- 1/8 Teaspoon Salt
- 2 Tablespoons Butter (cold and cut up in cubes)
- 1 Tablespoon Sugar
- 2 Tablespoons and 2 Teaspoons Milk
- Preheat oven to 425°F.
- Dump flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Mix Well.
- Add cut up butter cubes and rub it into the dry ingredients with your fingers. It will look crumbly and like you've done nothing, but I promise you are well on your way to perfect scones.
- Add sugar and mix in.
- Add your milk and stir with a spoon. The dough will still be weird and crumbly. I literally put the spoon away and started using my hands. I used the dough that was sticking together to pick up the loose ingredients left in the bowl.
- Move dough to floured countertop and knead dough for a few times until it looks like one uniform bumpy ball.
- Flatten out with your hands into a rectangular shape. Then cut diagonally to get that classic scone shape.
- Put cut wedges onto a greased cookie sheet (I sprayed it with Pam) and put in the oven for 12 minutes.
It's THAT simple!
You're done and you have beautiful delicious scones to enjoy! It was literally one of the easiest, fail proof, recipes I have ever attempted. I also love that I'm not left with a bunch of random scones that will never taste as good as coming right out of the oven. Enjoy and let me know how it goes!
