This is my grandmother’s Scotch Scones Recipe. Nope, we don’t come from a Scottish herritage. And I have no idea what makes these scones particularly “Scottish”. But I do know — they are always a hit for breakfast. Seriously, you’ll have a hard time keeping these as they get eaten so quickly…
Scotch Scone Recipe
- 3 cups of all purpose flour
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 5 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 egg beaten and add to that milk to make 1 cup
- 3/4 cup of butter (I used one butter stick)
- Optional: raisins and/or cinnamon (I used cinnamon*)
Preheat oven to 350.
In a bowl add ingredients and mix.
On a cookie sheet – place a non-stick rubber mat (or parchment paper will do). Using a tablespoon drop the batter on to the non-stick mat.
Bake 15 to 20 minutes.
*No, I don’t know if cinnamon is a particularly “Scottish” ingredient but this is the way my Grandma always made them and thus part of our family recipe.
These scones go really well for breakfast. Or afternoon tea. OR make your own high tea experience (with fancy cups and plates).
