Dorina's Scones



Ingredients:

2 1/2 Cups flour(300 gr)

2 1/2 tsp baking powder (10 gr)

1/2 cup sugar (100 gr)

3/4 cup butter (170 gr)

1 cup milk + 1 tbsp vinegar or buttermilk or heavy cream (230 gr)

Mix together and form into a disk (or two depending on what size you want to make) cut "like a pie" put wedges on baking pan and bake in pre-heated oven at 350F/180C for 15-20 min or until golden. ( a little longer if you make large scones!)

**you can also take the disc...wrap in plastic and freeze. Take out of freezer-cut frozen and bake as usual. Great to have on hand for a quick breakfast or to prepare for a party etc.

--------------

mix ins

for Cranberry/Orance scones

sub 1/3 cup fresh squeezed orange juice for 1/3 cup of the milk

add zest of one orange

add fresh or dried cranberries as desired to dough.

--------------------

Cinnamon Raisin Scones

roll dough and sprinkle with cinnamon, brown or any other sugar and raisins. Fold over and repeat until at least 2-3 layers (as seen in photo here) then form disk and sprinkle top with cinnamon and a little sugar.



--------------------

Blueberry Scones

add some vanilla to the dough

add blueberries-either frozen or fresh.

you can just add to the dough or do the foldover method as in the cinnamon raisin above.

Cinnamon is also a good addition to the blueberry.

-------------------------

Dorina's New Creation of

Honey/Lemon Scones with Chia

Substitute 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice or use in place of vinegar in the milk!

Add the zest of one lemon.

Add Chia seed to dough or in layers as above with

Bee pollen Honey granules.

Don't worry if the bee pollen turns dark brown or almost black... still tastes like honey!

-------------------

Other combinations to try

Apple/Almond

Lemon/Rosemary (use either powdered Rosemary or finely chop the needles!)

Blueberry/Basil

These are all so good!!!


Top any scone with a bit of powdered sugar, a simple glaze drizzle or just leave them plain!

These are low sugar by nature and with the various "additions" there isn't much need for other sweet toppings --unless it's a special occasion...then the powdered sugar or glaze looks so nice...and fancy!

Love,

Dorina
