Remember my amazing woodland tea-themed wedding reception? Well, I’m so excited to get to use some of my tea things again this Thursday!
We’re having a tea party at work to celebrate moving into our new building. It’s been super exciting to move all of our separate corporate locations into one amazing space, and we’re having a Uni-tea party!
While helping out with this party, one of the girls gifted me with her scone recipe so we can bulk-batch some scrummy scones for everyone to enjoy.
I’ve made over 100 scones for this event and sampled quiiiite a few.
Guys, this is the best scone I’ve ever had. I gave one to The Fellow, and he tried to so hard to be loyal and say he liked other scones I’ve made, but he couldn’t hide how much he loved them. He finally admitted, “You make good scones, and they’ve tasted similar, but they’ve never had this texture.”
The best part about this recipe? She said I can share it with you!
Now, the recipe she gave does involve additional items like white chocolate and a lemon glaze. However, for this round, I opted for just plain scones since I’m also providing a Devonshire cream.
I’m going to start you out with the plain version just like I made. We’ll get crazy with it in a later post.
Without further ado – JG’s Amazing Scones!
- 2 C Flour
- 1/3 C Sugar + a little extra for glazing
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 2 tsp Baking Powder
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1/2 C Butter
- 3/4 C Heavy Whipping Cream + a little extra for glazing
- Heat Oven to 385 degrees.
- Combine flour, sugar, baking powder in a large bowl.
- Rub in butter and vanilla until it resembles crumbs.
- Add Heavy Whipping cream and form into a ball.
- Turn dough out onto a floured surface.
- Pat out lightly into a flattened disc. Cut out scones using a biscuit cutter.
- Brush extra heavy whipping cream over top of scones and then sprinkle with sugar.
- Bake for 9-11 min. or until corners turn golden.
Alternate Directions: Form dough into a rough log and slice or cut into triangles.
You can scrunch back together the leftover pieces from cutting out your scones and cut additional ones, but these won’t raise as high.
Let me know if you try this and whom you share them with!
