    Scones, those light and delicious moist clouds to hold clotted cream and jam. So many recipes disappoint, but these from smittenkitchen.com via America's Test Kitchen are stunners.

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    scones

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 425°F.
    2. 2
      Place flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in large bowl or work bowl of food processor fitted with steel blade. Whisk together or pulse six times.
    3. 3
      If making by hand, use two knives, a pastry blender or your fingertips and quickly cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal, with a few slightly larger butter lumps. Stir in currants. If using food processor, remove cover and distribute butter evenly over dry ingredients. Cover and pulse 12 times, each pulse lasting 1 second. Add currants and pulse one more time. Transfer dough to large bowl.
    4. 4
      Stir in heavy cream with a rubber spatula or fork until dough begins to form, about 30 seconds.
    5. 5
      Transfer dough and all dry, floury bits to countertop and knead dough by hand just until it comes together into a rough, sticky ball, 5 to 10 seconds. Form scones by patting the dough onto a lightly floured work surface into a 3/4-inch thick circle, cutting pieces with a biscuit cutter, and pressing remaining scraps back into another piece and cutting until dough has been used up. You can also make a round and cut it into 8 wedges before baking it.
    6. 6
      Place rounds or wedges on ungreased baking sheet and bake until scone tops are light brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool on wire rack for at least 10 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.

      These are the most tender scones and reminded me of the scones I had in England. I did increased the sugar to 4 tbsp, as I like them a tad bit sweeter ( I do realize Americans like their scones sweeter than the Brits). I also used 1% milk instead of the heavy cream reducing the calories to 180 from 300 and they were still wonderful. You could sprinkle some coarse sugar on top before baking or drizzle with a thin glaze made from powdered sugar and milk after they come out of the oven and are still warm, but that would definitely add more sweetness to your scones. I have also used dried cranberries, blueberries and cherries for a different twist. This is the ONLY scone recipe I use.

      It was my first time making scones and it won't be my last time. It was easy to do with the food processor. I made a round and cut in 8 pieces. I baked them 15 minutes. The taste is wonderful. The texture is great also. I used dried cranberries. Thanks Marra :) Made for Zaar Star game

      I gave my cockatiel, Pepper, a few scrumptious morsels. He bantered by speaking in a plummy English accent and began shaking those tail feathers. Yeah, he knows how to get the most out of those skinny legs. Made for Everyday Is A Holiday.
