Simple Scones


This is a recipe from the South Arm Community Kitchen which I missed. I was away on vacation.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar + 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, frozen
  • 1/2 cup raisins (or dried currants)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 large egg

Instructions

  1. Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and preheat oven to 400 degrees Celsius.
  2. 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 the butter (mixture should resemble coarse meal), then stir in raisins.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk sour cream and egg until smooth.
  4. 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).
  5. Place on a lightly floured surface and pat into a 7 to 8 inch circle about 3/4 inch thick. Sprinkle with remaining 1 teaspoon sugar. Use a sharp knife to cut into 8 triangles (we cut into small round dough); place on a cookie sheet (preferably lined with parchment paper), about 1 inch apart. Bake until golden, about 15 to 17 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes and serve warm or at room temperature.

In the same kitchen, the South Arm Community Kitchen also made a Might Grain Salad and Edamame Dip which I had blogged before.
