1/4 Photos of Buckingham Palace Scones
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!HAPPY BIRTHDAY BARBARA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "What better for this Buckingham Palace than a scone recipe from the lovely Kew Royal Botanical Gardens … Maids in Waiting… Reportedly from the restaurant across from the Kew The Maids in Waiting (I think that is the name) in KEW right across the street from the Royal Botanical Gardens ..they also make these wonderful little cakes called Maids in Waiting!! otherwise, the Orangerie in Kensington." The above was from my friend Katharine who came over to the house with more friends, to make me a post party brunch. What a kind and thoughtful present! We all had a wonderful time. I relaxed with one of my friends in the parlor, while the others cooked. This is why they called the scones, "Buckingham Palace Scones".
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Preheat oven to 425°F.
- 2Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
- 3Chop in the butter until the particles of butter are the size of coarse cornmeal.
- 4Add the egg and milk. Stir quickly and lightly, only until no flour shows.
- 5Add more milk if needed to make dough soft.
- 6Turn the dough out on a floured surface and knead gently about 15 times.
- 7Cut the dough in half. Shape each half into a ball, press each down into a round and cut into 8 wedges like a pie.
- 8Place the wedges on a greased (I use parchment) cookie sheet without allowing the sides to touch.
- 9Bake until golden brown about 12 minutes.
