To make about 6 scones
As per wikipedia, “The scone is a small British quickbread”. I think scones are more like savoury biscuits with a hint of sugar.. well, in our case, butterscotch chips 🙂
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
5 tablespoons unsalted butter
5 tablespoons white sugar
2/3 cup whole milk
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
1 egg yolk, beaten
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F .
Lightly grease a baking sheet or line with baking parchment.
Sift flour and baking powder into a bowl.
Rub butter and sugar into flour till it crumbles.
Add milk and butterscotch chips.
Knead gently together, being careful not to over mix. Dough will be sticky.
Drop spoonfuls to the baking dish or roll around in extra flour and form a biscuit like shape. Brush tops with egg yolk.
Bake in preheated oven until risen and lightly golden on top, 12 to 15 minutes.
Brush with butter and sprinkle some crushed butterscotch chips on top.
Enjoy with some hot lemon tea or earl grey.
