Honey Scones

January 20, 2010


This is a very basic scone but very good.  I’ve been looking for a honey scone recipe for a while and while I don’t think this is the one it was still tasty.  Original recipe found via The Repressed Pastry Chef

2c all purpose flour
1T baking powder
1/4t salt
4T cold, unsalted butter cut into pieces
3T honey
1c cream

Preheat oven to 400F
Combine dry ingredients, cut in butter until crumbly.
Whisk honey and cream, add to the dry ingredients and mix with spoon – this will be thick, almost like dough

Press into greased scone pan… or… lightly flour a work surface, roll out the dough into a circle, cut into 8 triangle-shaped pieces and transfer each to a baking sheet lined with parchment.

Bake for approx 20 minutes or until golden brown on top. Cool for 5 minutes in pan then turn out onto wire rack and cool for another 5 minutes.

Serve warm whipped cream and jam or mascarpone and lemon curd…
