I am not exaggerating when I say these are the best tasting, most loved and easiest scones in existence. These are my Mom’s recipe and for years she has been impressing people with their buttery, melting in your mouth ways. They are kind of like a buttery, sugar biscuit, the simplicity and texture is what makes them special. They are ridiculously easy to make, when my brother was 9 he learned how to make these by himself because he loved them that much. If my then, 9 year old brother could make these so can you.
Don’t Miss out on these!
You will need:
3 Cups Flour
1/2 Cup Sugar
4 1/2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoons Salt
2 Sticks Butter
1 Slightly Beaten Egg
1/4 Cup Half and Half
Bake at 375˚ for 15-25 minutes
Having my Mom’s hand written recipes is so special and sentimental
Preheat oven to 375˚ In a mixer bowl add 3 cups of flour.
Add 1/2 teaspoon of salt
Add 4 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
Add 2 sticks of butter
Pulse until the butter is the size of small peas.
After combined add one slightly beaten egg. AND 1/4 cup Half and Half
Beat until all the wet ingredients are combined but you CANNOT over mix, it should look like this.
Combine dough into a ball.
Cut the dough in half.
Cover your surface in sugar, and pat into an even disk shape.
Cut like a pizza
Roll in fine sugar. I topped my scones also with the larger granulated sugar chunks.
Line up. Bake for 15-25 minutes. It is much better to take them out slightly undercooked because they will continue to cook on the sheet once removed! If you feel they are overcooked slightly take them off the cookie sheet immediately!
