I've tried to make scones before multiple times but I think that the recipes kept failing because of the high altitude here. I can't remember where I got this recipe from unfortunately so I can't give it the proper credit it deserves but these come out light and buttery and they also freeze really well.
The recipe required the use of a food processor to cut the butter into the dry ingredients until you get a grainy sand-like texture.
The next step is to incorporate the eggs and the trick is not to overwork the dough when rolling it out and cutting it into discs.
Brushing the tops of the scones with egg wash gives them a beautiful golden color.

I love to make food and to eat. I've been baking since before I was a teenager and exploring more with cooking for the past decade. This section of the site is dedicated to my experiments in the kitchen.
