DIRECTIONS

  • Pre-heat oven to 350°F.
  • In a large bowl, mix all the dry ingredients (powdered almonds through sugar).
  • Add the butter cubes, and massage them into the dry ingredients with your hands until you can no longer discern them; the mixture should look crumbly/sandy.
  • Add all remaining ingredients (EXCEPT powdered sugar), mixing with a wooden spoon until they are completely incorporated, but do not over-mix.
  • Divide the dough into 2 balls; it will be sticky but use a bit of additional flour to work.
  • One at a time, lay each ball on a well-floured surface; sprinkle the top with flour, then flatten with your (well-floured) hands into a circle about 8 to 10 inches and 1 to 2 inches thick.
  • Cut each circle into 8 wedges and place on a non-stick bake sheet (use a spatula if needed to facilitate the transfer).
  • Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until the scones are puffed and golden in color.
  • If desired, dust with powdered sugar when cooled.
