sour.cream.&.raisin.scones

If you have had any contact with me in the last few weeks you know I have been on a Great British Bake Off bender. If you are unfamiliar with the show, let me just tell you that it inspires a need for all things baked, preferably stuffed in ones face while trying on a quaint English accent.

Today the need for scones was too great and I preheated the oven. (to 400*)

  • Mix 2 cups flour with 1/3 cup sugar, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp baking soda & 1/2 tsp salt in a bowl
  • Grate 8 TB of frozen butter into the flour mixture and work the mixture with your fingers until it resembles coarse meal
  • Stir in 1/2 cup raisins or whatever weird dried fruit you choose

  •  Whisk together 1 large egg and 1/2 cup sour cream in separate bowl and add to flour mixture
  • Press the dough together against the side of the bowl incorporating with as little hands on time as possible
  • Roll dough to 3/4 – 1 inch thick and cut in equal triangles

  • Sprinkle top of scones with sugar and bake for 15 – 17 minutes on the lower middle rack

 

Stuff face. Great with some cream and jam and of course
