Sweet Scones

If you know me, you know I love all things British and all things food. So it’s only natural that I’ve become obsessed with baking scones lately.

I was scouring the web for a decent scone recipe when I came across this particular one from Food.com. I’ve fudged it a bit and added raisins because I’m a grandma at heart, but they’re optional of course. You’ll find my new and improved recipe below:

  1. 2½ cups of all-purpose flour
  2. ¼ cup of granulated sugar
  3. 1 tablespoon of baking powder
  4. ½ teaspoon of salt
  5. ⅔ cup of milk
  6. 8 tablespoons of unsalted butter (1 stick)
  7. 1 cup raisins (optional)

If you don’t feel like adding raisins, you can always experiment a little and add in some cinnamon or some mini chocolate chips. Once you have all of your ingredients laid out, you’ll want to preheat the oven to 425º F to start things out.

Mixing and baking instructions are as follows:

  1. Mix flour, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl – stir well
  2. Add butter and mix in with a pastry blender or your fingers until the mixture looks like fine crumbs
  3. Add sugar; toss to mix
  4. Add milk and stir with a wooden spoon until dough forms (it may be a bit crumbly, but that’s okay!)
  5. Place dough on floured counter and knead gently until dough comes together in a ball
  6. Pat or roll the dough into a circle about 1½ inches thick
  7. Cut the circle into 8 wedges
  8. Place onto a greased baking sheet
  9. Bake for about 12-14 minutes (or until golden brown on top)

Happy baking, ya’ll!
