I just tried a new recipe for scones. I've tried a lot of scone recipes and this one is, hands down, the best. I copied it from a cookbook though I don't remember whose because L was screaming and I was writing as fast as I could so we could high-tail it out of there. I love it because it has simple ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen, no buttermilk or cream. But here it is:
Real Welsh Scones
2 & 1/4 C flour
1/3 C sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp salt
1 stick butter, cut into 12 sections
1/2 C milk
Mix the dry ingredients, then cut in butter until mixture is mealy.
Beat egg and milk together in seperate dish.
Toss the wet and dry together.
Gently knead 4 times.
Make 2 6" discs on parchment paper.
Using a floured knife cut half way through the discs making 8 sections.
Bake 12-15 mins at 450.
I added some craisins to one of mine and sprinkled them with some sugar to make them a bit prettier.
