Default A Tasty Scone Recipe

A Tasty Scone Recipe.

Yields 8 Scones

Preparation Time: 20 Minutes
Cook Time: 15 Minutes
Ready in 35 Minutes


INGREDIENTS
1 3/4 Cups all-purpose flour
4 Teaspoons baking powder
1/4 Cup white sugar
1/8 Teaspoon salt
5 Tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 Cup dried currants or raisins
1/2 Cup milk
1/4 Cup sour cream
1 egg
1 Tablespoon milk

DIRECTIONS
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Sift the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt into a large bowl. Cut
in butter using a pastry blender or rubbing between your fingers until
it is in pea sized lumps. Stir in the currants. Mix together 1/2 Cup
milk and sour cream in a measuring cup. Pour all at once into the dry
ingredients, and stir gently until well blended. Overworking the dough
ruins the scones.

With floured hands, pat scone dough into balls 2 to 3 inches across,
depending on what size you want. Place onto a greased baking sheet,
and flatten lightly.

Let the scones barely touch each other. Whisk together the egg and 1
tablespoon of milk. Brush the tops of the scones with the egg wash.
Let them rest for about 10 minutes.
Bake for 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until the tops are
golden brown, not deep brown. Break each scone apart, or slice in
half. Serve with butter or clotted cream and a selection of jams - or
even plain.

diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies."
