These scones have been making the rounds on pinterest lately. I made them this morning and they are delicious! I opted not to glaze them, but served them warm with butter instead. I hope you enjoy! Adapted from here.
- 2 C flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 C cold butter or margarine
- 1 egg, separated
- 2 Tbsp honey
- 1/3 C buttermilk
- Cinnamon & sugar to sprinkle on top
Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in the butter. In a separate bowl, mix together the egg yolk, honey and buttermilk. Add to dry ingredients and mix until combined. Knead together lightly until dough holds together and forms a ball. Roll out on a floured surface until about 1/2 inch thick. Whisk egg white until bubbly and brush over dough, then sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top. Cut into wedges and bake on a baking pan for 10-12 min at 400F.
