Master Scones Recipe

Share

You may have tried scones before but this Master Scones Recipe is really something like you’ve never tasted before. My secret ingredient in the recipe is the addition of heavy cream or buttermilk, making the scone extra dense, moist and simply scrumptious. I love filling my scones with berries and fruit and have chosen an orange, citrus icing as my topping for this particular recipe.

To make Master Scones Recipe, you will need the following ingredients:

Prepare triangle scones

Roll out sticky dough onto a lightly floured surface and with lightly floured hands, roll into a ball. Shape into an 8-inch disc and use a sharp knife to cut into 8 wedges. For smaller scones, shape the dough into two 5-inch discs and then cut into 8 wedges.
Or prepare drop scones
Mix the dough a few more times for it to come together then separate into drop scones, about ¼ cup portion sizes, placed 3-inches apart on a lined baking sheet.
