Classic Scones with Homemade Berry Jam Author: Weaver's Orchard Prep time: 15 mins Cook time: 12 mins Total time: 27 mins Serves: 6-8 servings
Ingredients
  • 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 tsp. baking powder
  • ¾ tsp. salt
  • ⅓ cup cold butter, diced
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ⅔ cup yogurt
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
For egg wash -
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • Plus extra flour for dusting surface
*Optional - dried fruit, orange zest, vanilla bean powder, etc. for extra flavor
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 and place your baking sheets in the oven to pre-heat as well.
  2. Mix together the dry ingredients in a food processor for a few seconds. Add the butter and mix about 30 seconds until the butter is evenly spread out throughout the flour mixture.
  3. In a microwave-safe bowl, mix together the yogurt, milk and vanilla. Microwave 1 minute. It might look a little bit lumpy or curdled, but that's ok!
  4. Add to flour mixture in the food processor. Mix JUST until combined.
  5. Turn it out on a lightly floured surface. Press out to 1½ inch thickness. Use a biscuit cutter or the ring of a canning jar to cut scones into rounds. Gently re-work dough and repeat steps until all scones have been formed.
  6. Lightly dust each slice with flour and transfer to the pre-heated baking sheet. Brush with egg wash (1 beaten egg with 1 tbsp milk). Bake 10-12 minutes at 400 degrees.
  7. Serve with homemade jam and whipped butter.
  8. If you have any leftovers, be sure to store them in an air-tight container and serve them toasted.
