The Baker Upstairs: best scones ever

best scones ever

Yum


These are seriously the best. I've made them twice, with great results each time, and I'm already scheming about when I can make them again.

Best Scones Ever

2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 T baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/3 cup butter
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup whole milk

Preheat oven to 375. Mix dry ingredients together, and cut in butter (it helps if you use a pastry cutter). Mix egg, vanilla, and milk together, then add to dry ingredients. Mix until just combined (don't overmix!) and then turn out onto lightly floured surface. Pat into a circle about 3/4 inches thick, then cut with a biscuit cutter. Twist while pressing down with the biscuit cutter for lighter and flakier scones. Place on a cookie sheet prepared with nonstick spray. Brush tops of scones with milk. Bake 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve with whipped cream and jam.
