These are so delicious! Try them out with butter and fresh jam....OMG who can resist.
2 1/4 cups of all purpose flour
2 heaping teaspoons of baking powder
1 1/3 sticks of butter, room temperature but not too soft
3/4 cups of confectioners sugar
3 egg yolks
Vanilla flavoring, 1 tablespoon
1/2 cup of warm milk
the skin from 1 lemon (optional)
For brushing your scones:
1 egg yolk
2 tablespoons of milk
Sift your flour on your working surface.
Add the baking powder and form a crown with the baking powder and flour.
Add the vanilla, mix some more.
Now pour your warm milk over the cream, mix with a spoon at the same time.
Once it's all mixed together incorporate the flour without working the dough, just move the flour towards the center to cover the cream you made, it will be more of a liquid consistency.
Add some more flour to your working surface.
Roll your dough and create a rectangle shape about 1/2 in thick.
Invite some friends over, bring out your china and enjoy warms scones!
Hugs to all!
