Scones!

IMGP7910

It’s Sunday and it’s raining.  So what better way to wake up than to have the smell of fresh baked scones in the air!  Don’t worry the coffee is brewing too :)

I tried a new recipe today, a sweet as opposed to the savory I’m use to.  I just did a standard Google search and this was the first one that came up.

Thanks Joy of Baking, we have a winner!

Recipe:  Cream Scone Recipe: From http://www.joyofbaking.com/scones.html

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup cold butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

Directions:

  1. In food processor place flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  2. Cut up butter into small cubes and add to processor and pulse until it looks like oatmeal.
  3. Mix cream, egg and vanilla then add to the flour and pulse until it just comes together.
  4. Remove from processor and knead gently on floured board.  Only until it comes together, it won’t be pretty.  Use favorite cutter, I used a fluted square.
  5. Brush with heavy cream and sprinkle with a little sugar.
  6. Bake in 375 degree oven for 15-20min until nicely golden brown.
  7. Enjoy!

These were really really good! I made a really big one just for me :)
