Buttermilk Scones

 

Prep Time: 20 Minutes; Cost: $
Yield: 12 Scones; Difficulty Level: 2
Source: "Country Weekend Entertaining"

 

Ingredients:

- 2 cups flour
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 12 tbsp (1-1/2 sticks) cold butter, cut into pea-sized pieces.
- 2 eggs - 1/2 cup buttermilk

Egg Wash Ingredients

- 1 egg yolk
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 2 tablespoons sugar, for topping

 

DIRECTIONS

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Butter a baking sheet.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, and baking powder. Mix in the butter with your hands until coarse crumbs form. Add the eggs and buttermilk. Stir the mixture with a fork until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl.

Turn the dough onto a countertop and knead until the dough just holds together. Roll out or pat the dough into a 1/2-inch-thick rectangle. Cut into 12 triangles. Arrange the triangles on the baking sheet.

In a small bowl, beat together the egg yolk and milk and brush onto each scone. Sprinkle with sugar and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown.
