    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
    2. 2
      Line baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly spray paper with nonstick cooking spray.
    3. 3
      Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, butter, almond paste and almonds in food processor.
    4. 4
      Pulse until mixture has the consistency of coarse crumbs. Put in a large bowl.
    5. 5
      Whisk together egg, egg yolk and 2/3 cup cream until blended. Stir the egg mixture into the flour mixture until dough just begins to hold together.
    6. 6
      Add dough to lightly floured surface. With lightly floured hands, pat dough to 1/2" thickness.
    7. 7
      Cut scones using a 2" diameter heart-shaped cookie cutter or round biscuit cutter. Gather excess dough and repeat process. Place scones 3" apart on prepared baking sheet.
    8. 8
      Lightly brush surface of scones with remaining 2 tablespoons of cream.
    9. 9
      Bake 15-20 minutes, or until puffed and golden brown.
    10. 10
      Remove from oven and cool on wire rack.
    11. 11
      Now: I add about 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract or so to my cream and egg mixture. I do not cut these with a cookie cutter and re-roll. I usually just cut them in squares and then into triangles.
    12. 12
      I also freeze them on a wax-paper lined sheet for several hours before baking and add about 3-4 minutes to my baking time.

      Like the name says - awesome almond scones! We enjoyed them hot out of the oven, loved the crunch of the almonds and the melting bits of almond paste. A great recipe Snicklefritzie!!
