Simpatico: 6am, Why Not Bake?

Just the life and times of a silly girl, her dachshunds and all things Southern!

6am, Why Not Bake?

We have the plague at our house... It isn't going away. Ever. So what does one do when they have a cranky boy child who is taking up all of your bed... sideways... You bake.

Easy, Sweet Scones
*2 cups all-purpose flour
*1/4 tsp salt
*2 tbsp baking powder
*1 stick unsalted butter
*1/2 cup granulated sugar (or honey maybe substituted)
*approx 1/4 cup milk

In your food processor bowl, place your flour, salt and baking powder. Pulse.
Cut your very cold butter into 8 pieces and add to the flour mixture. Pulse again until the mixture resembles large crumbs or pea size clumps.
At this point sprinkle in the sugar or honey. Pulse.
Add half of the milk and pulse until the small clumps become one big ball of dough (adding more milk as necessary). The ball of dough should come together and roll around the processor noisily.
After your dough has reached this stage, remove and knead one or two times on a floured surface. Not too much kneading as that can make them tough and melt the butter.
Roll out to about 1 1/2 inch thickness.
Cut out with cookie cutter (shape of your choice).
Arrange your scones closely on a clean cookie sheet.
You may sprinkle with sugar or brush with egg white at this point (optional).
Bake for 10-12 minutes.
