Strawberry Scones

Strawberry Scones
by Jennifer A. Wickes

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup strawberries -- sliced
1/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup unsalted butter
1 large egg -- beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup buttermilk

1 large egg -- beaten
1 tablespoon heavy cream

Preheat oven to 375 °F (190 °C) with rack in center of oven. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly spray with a non-stick vegetable oil. To make the glaze, mix together the beaten egg with the cream. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut the butter into small pieces and blend into the flour mixture with a pastry blender, two knives, or fingertips. This mixture should look like coarse crumbs. In a small measuring cup, combine the whipping cream, buttermilk, beaten egg and vanilla. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the liquid, stirring with a wooden spoon until the batter forms moist clumps. The batter will be sticky. Do not overmix. Carefully, add the sliced strawberries.

Gather dough together with your hands and transfer to a lightly floured surface. Gently knead for about 10 seconds until dough forms a ball and is smooth. Pat dough into a 7 inch (17.5 cm) circle that is about 1 inch (2.5 cm) thick. Using a sharp knife, cut circle into 8 triangular sections. With a pastry brush, brush off excess flour from scones, and place scones on prepared baking sheet. Brush the tops of scones with the glaze and sprinkle lightly with sugar (if desired).

Bake for approximately 15 minutes, until lightly browned, or a toothpick inserted in the middle of the scone comes out clean. Remove from oven. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Yields: 8 servings

Pumpkin Scones

1 cup pumpkin
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
dash cloves
1/4 cup milk -- approximately
1 egg

Mix dry ingredients in bowl.

Make a well in flour mixture and add pumpkin, melted butter and slightly beaten egg. Mix well; adding enough milk to form a dough that is soft but not too sticky to handle.

Turn out on floured board and knead lightly with fingertips. Pat dough into an oblong shape about 1 inch (2.5 cm). Cut scones with floured knife or cutter and place on cold ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake at 425 F / 220 C for 12 to 16 minutes.

Pumpkin Scones

Makes about 15

Cooking 15 minutes
Oven 210C/415F/gas mark 6-7


310g self-raising flour
1/4 tsp dried mixed herbs
60g butter, chopped
1 egg, lightly beaten
250g cooked, mashed pumpkin (350g raw pumpkin)
1-2 tbsp milk
milk, extra, for glazing

Preheat oven to hot. Grease a 28 x 18 cm shallow tin. Sift the flour into a large mixing bowl. Stir in the mixed herbs and add the chopped butter. Using your fingertips, rub in the butter until the mixture is fine and crumbly.
Combine the egg, mashed pumpkin and milk. Add to the flour mixture and stir with a knife until just combined.
Gather the dough together and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Press out gently until the dough is about 2cm (3/4 in) thick. Cut out rounds with a floured 5cm (2in) cutter.
Place the rounds in the tin and brush with the extra milk. Bake for 15 minutes, or until the tops of the scones are lightly golden. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool. Serve warm or cold, with butter.

Peach Nutmeg Scones

Peach Nutmeg Scones

Fresh, hot scones are a snap to make; this recipe, teaming peaches and nutmeg, is one of our all-time favorites.

2 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour or Mellow Pastry Blend
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 tablespoon baking powder
6 tablespoons cold butter, cut into pieces
2 large eggs
1/3 cup vanilla yogurt or sour cream
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup diced peaches, fresh or canned
2 tablespoons coarse sugar

Preheat your oven to 375°F. Lightly grease a divided scone pan, a 12-cup muffin pan, or a baking sheet.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, sugar, nutmeg, and baking powder. Cut in the butter, using your fingertips, a fork or a pastry blender.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, yogurt or sour cream, and the almond extract. Stir this mixture into the dry ingredients. Add the peaches and stir just until everything is well-combined. This is a wet, sticky dough, good for drop scones.

Divide the dough among the compartments of the scone pan, or drop by the scant 1/4 cupful into the cups of a muffin pan or onto a baking sheet. Sprinkle the scones with coarse sugar, and bake them until they're golden brown, 15 to 18 minutes (on a baking sheet), or 18 to 20 minutes (in a pan).

Yield: 8 to 12 scones.
