I love scones! Scones have a decadents to them.  Anyone you make Scones for, will feel special and pampered. I believe scones have a bad reputation of being hard to make, they are not, in fact they are easy!  Desserts are always fun, but these scones can replace any dessert in my book anytime!  Perfect for breakfast, brunch or anytime.  I made these beauties for a snack during a long car ride.

Perfect Scones Three Ways

  • 2 Cups Flour- Extra For Dusting
  • 5 Tablespoons Sugar- Extra For Topping
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 6 Tablespoons Cold Unsalted Butter- Cut Into Small Pieces
  • 3/4 Cup  Half & Half -Extra For Topping
  • 1 Egg

Strawberry Chocolate Scones

Add:

  • 1/2 Cup Dried Strawberries =Diced
  • 1/2 Cup Mini Chocolate Chips

Cranberry Pecan Scones

Add:

  • 1/2 Cup Dried Cranberries
  • 1/2 Cup Pecans- Crushed

Blueberry Cinnamon Scones

Add:

  • 1 Cup Dried Blueberries or Fresh -Cut in Half
  • 3 Tablespoons Cinnamon – Extra for Dusting Top

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in butter with a pastry cutter or two knives, until mixture looks like crumbs. In small bowl mix egg with half and half, then mix in the half-and-half mixture into scone mixture, until just mixed. Fold in desired flavor.

On floured surface, knead dough gently, for a minute or so.  Form dough into a cylinder shape about an inch thick.  Cut like a pizza pie into 8 pieces.  Grease a cookie sheet and place scones on cookie sheet.  Brush with extra half & half and sprinkle tops with extra sugar.   Bake about 15 -17 minutes or until tips are golden brown.  Cool on a wire rack.  Serve.  Enjoy<3
