Each third Sunday of the month we host a tea party at our Hand Embroidery Club. One of the standards of our menu is this super quick scone recipe! OK ladies, here it is!! Enjoy!
For this recipe you will need...
2 cups all purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 Tbsp of baking powder
1 1/4 cups of Heavy Cream (note: it only works with HEAVY cream, not whipping cream)
In a mixing bowl mix your dry ingredients until everything is evenly distributed. Then add your cream. The key to any scone or biscuit recipe is to NOT OVER mix. When the dough begins to come together squeeze it with your hands to form a ball.
Once you get your dough into a ball pat it into a round and start cutting wedges.
For the tea party I make two rounds out of each batch to make smaller scones. I then take some cream to brush over the dough and dust with sugar and bake. I bake them on parchment at 425 for 12 minutes. Just keep an eye on them since every oven is different. This recipe is so versatile you can add anything you'd like from sweet to savory. Enjoy!
Happy stitching! May your bobbin always be full!
