Recipe By: monaka (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/398)
Makes 8-10 Cook: 60 min

Ingredients

Pain flour 200g
Baking powder 8g
Unsalted butter 65g
Salt 1g (a pinch)
Caster sugar 20g
Vanilla extract few drops
Egg 40g
Milk 45ml

Method

1
Sift the flour and baking powder together into a bowl.
2
Add the salt and sugar.
3
Add the chilled butter and crumble it in, mixing with the dry ingredients. Continue crumbling until it becomes nice and smooth.
4
Mix together the milk and beaten egg. Make a well in the centre of the bowl and add the milk and egg mixture and the vanilla extract.
5
Combine everything with a scraper to avoid kneading it.
6
Simply cut the mixture in two, press and repeat several times. You will soon end up with a smooth dough.
7
Wrap the dough in cling film and flatten with a rolling pin to a thickness of 2cm. Let this dough rest for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
8
Use a cutter to make scones. Collect up the leftover dough, make into rounds, and cut out more scones.
9
Brush the scones with some beaten egg yolk and bake in an oven 180 ℃ for 15 to 20 minutes.
10
Remove from the oven and cool on a rack.
11
Serve warm with jam and clotted cream for true traditional scones!

Tips & Note

● Avoid kneading the dough in Steps ③, ⑤ and ⑥ to make a light scone. It's also worth using a dough scraper. You want to avoid forming gluten, as this will make it heavy.
● At Step ④, don't use all of the milk and egg mixture at once, leave about 10ml and use it where required to incorporate all the dry ingredients.
