The extra-rich taste of our cream scones comes from using milk powder in addition to the standard ingredients butter and cream. A light touch when combining the dough ensures a tender crumb.

Time 1h

Yield 8 scones

Number Of Ingredients 10

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cup heavy cream, plus more for brushing
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons dry low-fat milk powder
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting (see Cook's Note)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 stick (8 tablespoons) cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • Demerara or raw sugar, for sprinkling
  • Softened butter and jam, for serving

Steps:

  • Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Whisk the cream, egg and milk powder in a liquid measuring cup. Pulse the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder and salt in a food processor until combined. Add the butter and pulse only until pea-size pieces remain. Transfer to a large bowl and make a well in the center. Pour the wet ingredients into the well and mix with a fork, incorporating the dry ingredients a little at a time until a shaggy dough forms (it's okay if the dough looks a little dry, just don't overwork it). Lightly knead the dough in the bowl until it just comes together.
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat into a 1-inch-thick rectangle (about 9 by 7 inches). Cut in half lengthwise, then cut in half again crosswise; you should have 4 equal rectangles. Cut each piece in half from corner to corner making 8 triangular wedges. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet and freeze for 10 minutes.
  • Brush the tops with cream and sprinkle with demerara sugar. Bake the scones until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Let them cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes, and then transfer to a wire rack to cool for 15 more minutes. Serve warm with softened butter and jam.

  • In a medium bowl, mix flour, 1/3 cup sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Grate butter into flour mixture on the large holes of a box grater; use your fingers to work in butter (mixture should resemble coarse meal), then stir in raisins.
  • Using a fork, stir sour cream mixture into flour mixture until large dough clumps form. Use your hands to press the dough against the bowl into a ball. (The dough will be sticky in places, and there may not seem to be enough liquid at first, but as you press, the dough will come together.)

  • Blueberry Scones. Moist, tangy, sweet blueberry scones are a popular tea room treat. Add lemon zest to the batter to make the flavor of blueberries sing.
  • Buttermilk Scones. Cream-brushed buttermilk scones have a tangy flavor that practically begs you to top them with sweet fruit preserves or lemon curd. They also make an excellent base for miniature strawberry shortcakes.
  • Easy British Scone Recipe. These are the classic tea time scones enjoyed in British living rooms that taste wonderful with some butter and raspberry or strawberry jam.
  • Lavender Scones. Fragrant lavender scones make an excellent bridal or baby shower treat or an elegant addition to an afternoon tea for invited guests, with lavender sprigs decorating the serving platter.
  • Cheese Scones. Cheese scones are a favorite savory snack in Britain. They make a great mid-day pick-me-up, or even a light lunch when you're running between obligations.
  • Vegan Berry Scones. For those following a vegan diet, these dairy-free scones are a delicious option. The secret ingredient is virgin coconut oil, which imparts the desired, light, crumbly texture you crave in scones, along with a subtle coconut-vanilla taste.

  • Onion Scones. Savory onion scones would make a sophisticated substitute for onion bread or rolls when you serve steak and potatoes for dinner. They taste great topped with butter and look nice arranged with flatbreads in a bread basket.

HOW TO BAKE PERFECT SCONES | FEATURES | JAMIE OLIVER
2017-06-05
HOW TO BAKE THE PERFECT SCONES. First and foremost, brilliant scones are about having the confidence to do as little as possible. The less you knead the mix, the less the gluten will tighten up – which means your scones will stay loose and crumbly, rather than tight and springy. Make sure you sieve the flour and baking powder into your bowl.
