After my success with the Fruit Scone the other day, I was very inspired to further experiment with this recipe.
Since it is we are approaching Christmas, it think these Christmas Scone will be a welcome to serve as tea on Christmas day.
What you need:
250g bread flour
14g baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp nutmeg
½ tsp cardamom
½ tsp clove
½ tsp clove
120g butter (cold and cubed)
135g whipping cream
100g dried fruits (any of your choice)
1.5 tbsp rum
Soak dried fruits with rum for 2 hours or more.
Preheat oven to 190°C. Lined a baking sheet.
Combine all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl (Excluding dried fruits)
Using a paddle beater, beat in the cubed cold butter into the dry ingredients till it represent crumbs
Add in whipping cream, honey and egg.
Mix till just combined
Add in dried fruits and almond. Mix well.
Pour dough onto lined baking sheet, lightly flatten to 1” in height and using a round cutter, cut into circle.
Remove excess and space out the scone.
Lightly brush with egg wash and bake for 13-16 min till golden brown.
Transfer to cooling rack.
