These are easy-to-make eggless scones. Adding sugar is an option. Add cheese or herbs to the batter to make savoury scones. Or, add orange or lemon zest; dried raisins, dried blueberries, currants, dried cranberries, or other dried fruit, that have been plumped in hot water and drained. The possibilities are as endless as your imagination!
- 2 cups flour
- 3 tablespoons sugar (optional)
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup butter
- 1 cup milk
- Whisk, or sift the dry ingredients.
- Cut the butter into the flour, with a pastry blender, until it resembles coarse crumbs.
- Stir in the milk. Add any optional ingredients, if desired.
- On a floured surface, lightly knead the dough 5-10 times.
- Place on a greased, or parchment lined, baking sheet. Flatten gently to a 1" thick round.
- Cut, like a pie, into 8 wedges, but do not separate.
- Brush the top with about 1 tablespoon milk. Sprinkle with sugar, if desired.
- Bake 400 degrees, 12 -15 minutes, until golden brown.
my 12 year old daughter decided she wanted to make scones for breakfast so i got this recipe for her to try out. they turned out awesome!!!! so the next day she decided to make them with cheese and omitted the sugar and again turned out awesome! very good recipe for a beginner cook! and i myself will use this recipe for biscuits and scones as well.
I have to agree that it was not the most flavorful thing I've eaten, but it was good nonetheless. I was very moist. I added about 1/2 cup of cheese and my daughter loved it. I didn't get the consistency of dough that I could knead, so after mixing I used a large cookie scoop and dropped it onto a cookie sheet and it spread a bit. I also made two in cupcake cups.
ok if you enjoy eating a flavorless piece of pie. the only taste comes from sugar.
