Recipe: Home Made Scones

Happy Wednesday! We are half way through the week. Last weekend I decided to make some yummy scones for a little tea party that I had with my girlfriends. I was inspired by the fun afternoon tea sessions I had with my husband on our recent trip to the Bahamas. This recipe was very simple, easy and hardly a mess… in fact you probably have all the ingredients sitting at home right now! I kept them fresh by placing them on top of a piece of parchment paper in a cute little jar that I bought from Pier1! A lot of you have been asking for the recipe so I figured I would make a blog post about it. Remember, that you can always alternate the recipe by adding items you like such as dried fruits, chocolate chips or even cheese! I wanted a semi sweet scone to compliment the other desserts we were going to have so I only added sugar. Check out the recipe below and let me know how your scones turn out!

You will need:

1. 1 cup of sour cream
2. 1 teaspoon of baking soda
3. 4 cups of all-purpose flour
4. 1 cup of white sugar
5. 2 teaspoons baking powder
6. 1 teaspoon of salt
7. 1 cup of butter (cold)
8. 1 egg

Directions:

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a baking sheet
2. In a bowl, pour in your sour cream and baking soda then set it aside until later
3. Grab a large bowl and add in your: flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add in your cold butter (which you should have previously cut up into little cubes)
4. Add in your sour cream mixture and egg
5. Start mixing and kneading with your hands (remember not to over mix – once it is mixed just stop)
6. Roll out your dough and grab a cookie cutter (I used a basic circle) and cut into pieces
7. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Turn the tray around half way through the baking process and keep checking up on it
8. Let it cool on a cooling rack and then put them in a tight container or jar that keeps them fresh
9. Serve with a side of whipped cream or jam and voila!

Enjoy!
