Rochelle, from The British Pantry in Tecumseh, shared her recipe for scones today!



2 cups flour
1/2 cup heavy (whipping) cream
1/4 cup sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup currants (optional)
1/3 cup unsalted butter (chilled)

1 egg mixed with 1 tsp. water for glaze (optional)


Mix all dry ingredients together. Cut butter into 1/2” cubes & add to dry ingredients. Cut in with a pastry blender until mixture resembles
coarse crumbs.

In a separate bowl, stir egg, cream and vanilla together. Add this liquid to the dry ingredients along with the currants (or other fruit of your choice). Stir together until blended.

Using lightly floured hands, place the dough on a flour-dusted cutting board or pastry sheet. Roll or pat out to about 1/4” to 1/2” thick.

Cut with 2½” round biscuit cutter. Place on greased or parchment-lined baking sheet and brush with glaze. Sprinkle coarse sugar on top. Bake at 350°F until light brown - about 15 minutes or so. Cool on rack a few minutes before serving. Makes about a dozen scones.

I like these with Double Devon Cream and Sour Cherry Jam.
