Royal Wedding Scones

Filed under: News — Missy @ 11:18 pm

In honor of the Royal Wedding, here is a great recipe for scones.  Feel free to add dried fruit, nuts or even chocolate chips for a special treat.

Melt-in-Your-Mouth Scones

Makes 8 scones

Glaze:

1 large egg, beaten

1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream

Scones:

2 cups unbleached all purpose flour

1/3 cup granulated sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup unsalted butter, chilled and cut into 1/2” pieces

1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

1 large egg, beaten

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  1. Preheat oven to 375 with rack in center of oven.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with cooking spray.
  2. Make glaze:  mix together the beaten egg and cream.  Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.  Add in butter and blend with pastry blender or fingers.  This mixture should look like coarse crumbs.  Set aside.
  4. In a small mixing bowl, combine whipping cream, beaten egg and vanilla.  Make a well in the center of the crumb mixture and add the liquid, stirring with a wooden spoon until batter forms moist clumps.  The batter will be sticky.  Don’t over mix.
  5. Gather dough together with your hands and transfer to a lightly floured surface.  Gently knead for 10 seconds until dough forms a ball and is smooth.
  6. Pat dough into a 7 inch diameter circle that is about 1” thick.
  7. Using a sharp knife, cut circle into eight triangles (cut circle in half and in half again and each of those sections in half again).  Place scones on prepared baking sheet.
  8. Brush scone tops with glaze and sprinkle lightly with sugar.
  9. Bake for approximately 15 minutes or until a toothpick entered into the center of a scone comes out clean.  Transfer to a wire rack to cool.  Serve with whipped cream, butter or jam.
