Rich and tasty scones

1 TBSP baking powder
1/4 -1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup chilled butter – cut into small pieces

In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Add butter and cut into flour mixture with a pastry blender until coarse crumbs form.

In a small bowl, whisk egg and half and half together. Add to the flour mixture and stir with a fork until ingredients are moistened and hold together. Gather into a ball and transfer onto a lightly floured surface and knead several times. scone recipe photos 010

Pat into an 8″ round. With a sharp knife cut into 8 equal wedges.

Place wedges slightly apart on an ungreased baking sheet. scone recipe photos 014

Bake until golden brown on the bottom – about 12 minutes (the top of the scones will be lighter in color). Do not over bake.

Enjoy!
