These scones can be the peak of a perfect afternoon, spruced up with clotted cream and a delectable strawberry jam.

Ingredients of Scones

  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 tsp of baking powder
  • 1/4 cup of white sugar
  • 1/4 cup of sour cream
  • 5 tsp of butter
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp milk
  • 1 egg
  • strawberry jam (optional)
  • clotted cream (optional)

How to Make Scones

  • 1.1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  • 2.2. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl. Cut in butter using a pastry blender or by rubbing between your fingers until it looks like fine crumbs. Stir in the sugar.
  • 3.3. Mix together 1/2 cup milk and sour cream in a measuring cup. Pour into the dry ingredients, and stir gently until well blended.
  • 4.4. With floured hands, cut the dough round into 8 pieces. Place onto a greased baking sheet, and flatten lightly.
  • 5.5. Whisk together the egg and 1 tablespoon of milk. Brush the tops of the scones with the egg wash and let the scones rest for about 10 minutes.
  • 6.6. Now bake for 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown. Slice each scone in half and serve immediately.
