When we had our Anne of Green Gables book discussion we had raspberry cordial and of course we had to have scones.
This recipe comes from Money Saving Moms.
For the Dough
- 2 cups flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp salt
- ½ cup butter very cold, cut into small pieces
- 1 egg separated
- 3 Tbsp honey
- ⅓ cup buttermilk or ⅓ cup milk mixed with ½ tsp lemon juice
For the Crumb Topping
- 2 Tbsp sugar
- ½ tsp cinnamon
For the Icing
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1-3 tsp milk
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 400ºF
- In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
- Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly.
- Separate the egg white and yolk. Set the egg white aside.
- In a smaller bowl, mix egg yolk, honey, and buttermilk (or milk/lemon juice mixture).
- Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
- On a floured work surface, form the dough into a ball.
- Roll or pat the ball into a half-inch-thick disc, roughly 8 inches in diameter.
- Cut dough into eight equally-sized pieces.
- Transfer the dough to a greased baking sheet (a pie spatula makes this very easy).
- Whisk the egg white until froth forms and brush over the tops of the scones.
- Mix sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkle over egg-white-topped scones.
- Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes.
- While scones bake, mix powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla until a thin glaze forms.
- Drizzle glaze over scones after they come out of the oven.
This recipe was delicious and one that since that time my mom loves make again and again whenever she wants scones.
