Jam-in' Good Scones

Jam-in' Good Scones

(12 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1/4 cup of your favorite jam or marmalade
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 14 Tablespoons cold unsalted butter - cut into small pieces
  • 1 cup low-fat buttermilk
Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Use a pastry cutter or two knives to cut in the butter until the dough resembles coarse cornmeal. Avoid over-handling the dough.

Add the buttermilk and combine with a fork, then use your hands to gather the dough into a ball.

Pat out the dough on a lightly floured surface and form it with your hands into a rectangle about 1 inch thick. Spread jam on half the rectangle. Fold the other half onto the jammed half and roll out into a long rectangular shape about 3/4 inch thick.

Cut the dough into 12 squares. Place the scones 1/2 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 14 to 15 minutes.

The jam is baked right in, but that's no reason not to spread a little on top too!

Mr Breakfast would like to thank football for this recipe.
