Scones, glorious scones

To die for scones

Need to serve with jam, or lemon curd topped with whip cream unless you happen to have Devon’s cream handy.

Ingredients:

2 cups of all purpose flour

1/4 cup of white sugar

3 tbsp of lemon juice

1tbsp of baking powder

1 egg

1/2 cup of whipping cream

1/2cup if melted butter

In a cup mix about 2 tbsp of cream and a 1 tbsp of white sugar

Now in kitchen aid, I mix butter, cream, egg, baking powder and sugar. Once creamy I mix in the flour and add the lemon juice. If looking a bit runny add a little flour. The dough shouldn’t stick, it should be soft.

Preheat oven to 425 on a cookie sheet using a cookie scooper small, I take two scoops and roll then together into a ball. I place on baker sheet on a cookie tray. Then with cream and sugar in cup using a pastry brush, brush each top of dough with mixture. Then bake for 14 to 15 minutes until golden brown. Make sure to bake on middle rack.

Enjoy.
