“These are easy-to-make eggless scones. Adding sugar is an option. Add cheese or herbs to the batter to make savoury scones. Or, add orange or lemon zest; dried raisins, dried blueberries, currants, dried cranberries, or other dried fruit, that have been plumped in hot water and drained. The possibilities are as endless as your imagination!”

Directions

  1. Whisk, or sift the dry ingredients.
  2. Cut the butter into the flour, with a pastry blender, until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Stir in the milk. Add any optional ingredients, if desired.
  4. On a floured surface, lightly knead the dough 5-10 times.
  5. Place on a greased, or parchment lined, baking sheet. Flatten gently to a 1" thick round.
  6. Cut, like a pie, into 8 wedges, but do not separate.
  7. Brush the top with about 1 tablespoon milk. Sprinkle with sugar, if desired.
  8. Bake 400 degrees, 12 -15 minutes, until golden brown.
