Hey everyone, hockey references aside, I have a great scone recipe, and if you have a few minutes after the game I’d like you to try it out. It’s a sweet one. Literally.
I also want to let my readers know (this is a warning?) that the recipes I use are super flexible and I usually do not use exact measurements, or I make everything using 1 measuring cup and eyeball it. But I don’t post it unless I’ve tried it and love it.
Start by preheating your oven to 400 F and putting some parchment paper down on your flat cookie tray. This recipe has a 15 min. bake time & makes 8.
Get out 2 bowls and in the big one put your dry ingredients:
-3 cups flour
-1/2 cup sugar
-5 teaspoons baking powder
-1/2 teaspoon sea salt
-1 tsp cinnamon
Mix it evenly.
Add or “cut in”
– 3/4 cup margarine (maybe butter?)
– 5 tsp cream cheese
In a separate tiny bowl whisk up
-1 tbs vanilla
Add to the flour mixture (I did it half at a time) & make dough!
This is where I added about
-1/2 cup dried cranberries (although lots of other fruits would work too)
Put out some flour on a cutting board or your table.
Knead the dough for a minute
Roll it into a tube
Then cut it into 8
Put the 8 pieces onto your parchment in the preheated oven for 15-16 minutes, ovens may vary so watch the bottoms for golden browness….
…and hey, if you over cook them put ‘em on the floor and pass ‘em around, free hockey pucks! C’est la but!
I want to also say that these go really well with some home made Apple Butter from my friend at Becsucre Butters! You can also reach her on Facebook! https://www.facebook.com/LesBeurresBecsucreButters
