I have a scone baking curse. I love 'em to death but yet I can't make them myself. Whenever I mention that I want to make scones, my family cringes at the notion and persuades me out of it. But, my cousin Lauren (who has her own wonderful blog), told me to try her favorite scone recipe. And after I made my way through some items on my "to-bake" list, I finally made them.
As they popped out of the oven, the heavens opened. I had at last made some great scones! The hallelujah chorus played in the back ground as I took my first bite, then my next, and my many others after that.
The only bad thing about this recipe? It only make eight! These went so fast! I will for sure be making a second batch.
Adapted from the Pillsbury Cookbook, seen on Lauren's blog
1 ½ cups all purpose flour
¾ cup "quick cooking" oats (Quaker Oats or something else that you would use for oatmeal)
¼ cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
½ tsp cinnamon
½ cup butter
½ cup milk
1 tbsp butter, melted
1 tbsp sugar
¼ tsp cinnamon
Heat oven to 375. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, combine flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and ½ tsp cinnamon. Blend well. Using pastry blender or fork, cut in ½ cup butter, until mix is crumbly. Add milk all at once, stirring just until moistened. On a well-floured surface, gently knead dough five or six times, or enough to work the dough into a ball.
Placed on baking sheet; press into six inch circle, about one in thick. Brush top with melted butter. In small bowl, combine sugar and ¼ tsp cinnamon. Sprinkle over the top. Cut dough into eight wedges. Separate slightly. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve warm.
I actually needed quite a bit longer to get mine golden brown, almost 15 minutes! But that was just me.
Makes eight scones.
