Love these scones. They held a nice flavor through the baking process. I used my mixed berry jam which is a jam I make every year around Christmas time. You can use any jam but, raspberries in my mixed berry jam really lent a lot to the end result. Enjoy! Diane
Homemade Mixed Berry Jam Scones
makes 16 scones
1/2 Cup Mixed Berry Jam (my Christmas Jam)
2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more if needed
2 Tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 Tablespoons unsalted butter
2/3 cup milk
1 egg, whisked for egg wash
3 Tablespoons demerara sugar
Preheat oven to 400 F degrees.
Kitchen Tip: The butter in scones needs to be super COLD. IF you've handled your dough too much, you will want to set your scones in the freezer for at least 15 minutes before baking. In the Winter, its cold enough here that can I set my baking tray, covered in saran, outside on our patio table to chill before baking.
