Cream Cheese Scones {Bake!}

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.

    […] The 10th recipe I made from Nick Malgieri’s “Bake!” was Cream Cheese Scones. Wow, these were really quick to put together. Only problem – I didn’t have cream cheese, but I DID have cottage cheese and thought I’d give it a try. Worked out perfect . These scones were heavy, but so delicious! We served them with homemade jam – YUM! Others who made these scones: Abby and Phyl. […]

    I would like to just eat the ones you made as they look so perfect. Need to get to these soon. I am beginning to surface again. I have said it before, and I will say it again…I don’t know how you manage to keep up with all you do. I stand in awe.

      Thanks. I’ve been lying low when it comes to all my cooking/baking groups lately, too. But, as you say, I’m beginning to resurface. I’d be glad to share a scone or two with you. C’mon over.

    Will make these today, don’t have cream cheese, though. Do you think cottage cheese will work?

      I don’t know. It’s worth a shot.

      Yes, I’ve heard that some people have an almost unnatural affection for scones. 🙂
