Okay y'all, scones are pretty yummy. Up until recently I had never even tasted a scone. But then I saw the light. I discovered this recipe (I have no clue where it's from) sometime over the summer and it's pretty legit. So of course I have to share!
All you need is:
2 cups of flour
2 teaspoons of sugar
1 teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoon of baking powder
1 1/2 cups of heavy cream
1/2 cup of whatever you want to add to them. Today the mix-in was chocolate chips, you could do cranberries, blueberries, nuts, etc. Or don't mix anything in at all! They are great by themselves as well.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix everything together. Knead the dough briefly on a lightly floured board. Then press into a circle (about half and inch to an inch thick) and cut into wedges (I cut my circle into 8 slices). Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden, let cool for a bit, then enjoy the greatness. You can put butter or jam or whatever you'd like on them, or enjoy them as they are.
Nom, nom, nom!
These aren't too sweet, which is perfect because I'm not a fan of overly sweet things. They're kind of like biscuits and muffins put together. And kind of reeeeally good. Try to just eat one.
