British Herb Scones (Biscuits) Recipe

July 5th, 2014 by alice  Tags: , , , | Print This Post Print This Post

INGREDIENTS

  1. 8ouncesself-rising flour
  2. 1/2teaspoonsalt
  3. 1 1/2ouncesbutter, cold from the refrigerator and cut into small cubes
  4. 2tablespoons finely choppedparsley
  5. 1/2tablespoon finely choppedsage
  6. 1teaspoon choppedthyme leaves
  7. 1/2teaspoon finely choppedtarragon leaves
  8. 5ouncesmilk(more or less may be required)
  9. milk, a little extra to glaze

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Lightly grease a baking tray and dust it with flour.
  3. Sift the flour and salt together into a large bowl.
  4. Add butter to the bowl, toss briefly through the flour, then rub it in with your (preferably cold) fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  5. Stir in the herbs.
  6. Start adding the milk, mixing initially with a spatula or palette knife, and then when the dough starts to come together, with a quick light hand.
  7. You are aiming for a soft, unsticky dough which leaves the sides of the bowl clean; you may not need all the milk – if, however, the dough seems a bit dry, add a teaspoon more milk at a time.
  8. Be careful not to add too much milk, and do not overwork the dough.
  9. Shape the dough into a round with your hands and place on a lightly floured surface.
  10. Flour the rolling pin, then lightly roll out the dough to a thickness of a half-inch.
  11. Stamp out 2” rounds with a biscuit cutter.
  12. When you are left with the trimmings, bring these together and roll out again lightly, and continue stamping out rounds until you have cut out the last scone.
  13. Lay the scones on the prepared tray, and brush the tops lightly with the extra milk.
  14. Bake 10 – 12 minutes until well risen and lightly browned.
  15. Remove to a wire rack to cool.
  16. Serve as suggested above, and store any left over in the freezer, to be gently re-warmed later in a microwave oven.
