Before the guys went underway, I wanted to bake something that would be hearty enough for them to take on the ship that wouldn’t melt, and would still be delicious. Although Pinterest is great, I have been using the website Supercook to help me find recipes that can utilize the ingredients I already have in the house. I was sick of finding recipes on Pinterest that looked delicious but required one obscure ingredient that I didn’t have on hand. So Supercook has been a lifesaver. Most recently, I found a Scone Recipe that we all enjoyed. This recipe didn’t include much flavor however, so I doctored it a little by adding cinnamon and a glaze on top.
2 1/2 Cups Flour
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
8 Tablespoons Butter (1 stick)
1/3 Cup Sugar
2/3 Cup Milk
Approximately 1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon (or to taste)
- Mix flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
- Cut up the stick of butter, and add it to the mixture. I didn’t have a pastry blender, so I used my fingers to press the butter into the mixture. Do this until it looks like fine crumbs that stick together when pressed.
- Add Sugar to the mix by tossing.
- Then, add milk and stir until a dough forms. This dough may still be crumbly.
- Next, knead the dough on a floured surface until it forms into a ball.
- Pat the dough into a circle about 1-1 1/2 inches thick. Then cut into wedges.
- Place the wedges onto a greased pan and bake for 12 minutes at 425 Degrees or until the edges turn golden brown.
- Let scones cool before adding glaze.
Once the scones were complete, I noticed that although they were nice and moist, they lacked much flavor. So, I added a quick little glaze on top.
1/2 Cup Sugar
1 Tablespoon Milk
1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon
- Mix all three ingredients together in a small bowl.
- Heat the mixture in the microwave for 10 seconds to help make it easier to spread (if needed).
- Then, I just used a fork to drip drizzle the glaze over the cooled scones.
When I make these again, I would like to add in some chocolate chips!
