This week’s Bake! selection is from our newest baker, Glennis, who chose these simple, delicious scones for her first pick. And a great pick it was.
The dough consisted of flour, sugar, baking powder, cream cheese, salt, butter, eggs, and milk, and came together very quickly in the food processor. After mixing the dough, I dumped it out on a floured board, kneaded it a few times, and divided it in two.
I shaped each piece of dough into a circle about six inches in diameter, then scored each one into six sections.
Although the recipe didn’t call for it, I topped each scone with sprinkling sugar. I baked the scones at 425°F for 20 minutes, let them cool a bit, then divided them.
I served the scones with red currant jelly. They were moist, not as crumbly as many scones, and really delicious.
This was such a simple and quick recipe. It took just over half-an-hour start to finish. Definitely one to make again and again.
