Scones

Product Used

  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp baking powder
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 pinch salt

Recipe Instructions

Put the metal blade in the bowl. Place the flour, baking powder and salt in the bowl and process briefly to mix them. Cut the unsalted butter into pieces and add it to the bowl with the sugar. Process for 5-7 seconds, or until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs, then, with the machine running, gradually pour the milk in through the feed tube. Process for about 10 seconds or until a sticky mixture has formed. On a well-floured surface knead the dough lightly then roll out to 3/4″ thick and using a 2″ pastry cutter, cut out the scones. Place them on a greased baking tray and bake in a hot at oven at 430 degrees (gas mark 7) for 10-15 minutes or until well risen and browned. Cool on a wire rack.
