I like to make scones for my kids on a morning where we don't have a lot going on. I have two recipes for scones, but neither one was working for me. I like to make my scones in a glass pie plate and serve them cut into triangle wedges. I like a wetter dough. I like butter, but not too much. I like adding in dried fruit, but my kids like adding in chocolate chips. I made this recipe to be quick, to fit into a glass pie plate, and to be flexible to be plain or have add-ins. Enjoy!
My SconesRecipe by Sheila at musings of a mommy.blogspot.com
2 cups flour
1/4 to 1/3 cup sugar (I put less in the mix, and sprinkle sugar on the top)
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup (one stick) butter
1/2 cup milk
add-ins, optional (dried cranberries, raisins, chocolate chips, nuts, etc.)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Mix egg and milk in a small bowl and set aside. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Cut in cold butter and mix with a fork or fingers until crumbly. Add egg/milk all at once and mix. Add add-ins. Put into greased glass pie plate and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until edges start to turn brown.
