Scones are the perfect treat for afternoon tea, to have with a cup of coffee or tea or to share with others. I love scones and their buttery soft texture. Because scones don’t involve too many ingredients, you can play around with the flavours and still end up with a great scone. I baked grapefruit scones with cardamom drizzle and they were delicious.
1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
Zest of 1 grapefruit
1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp unsalted butter, cut into cubes
1/2 cup fresh grapefruit juice
1/4 plain greek yogurt
1 Tbsp milk
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 – 1/2 tsp cardamom (more for a stronger flavour)
1 tsp water
Preheat oven to 400°F. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, add flour, sguar, baking powder, salt and zest. Mix it all together.
Add butter and mix.
Add in juice and yogurt and mix, until blended.
Place dough onto baking sheet and form into a disc about 1 inch thick and 8 inches in diameter. Cut into 8 wedges and separate each wedge from the middle.
Brush the milk over top the scones.
Bake for 18 – 20 minutes until just golden. Allow to cool.
Mix your glaze in small bowl and drizzle over top the scones while they are warm.
Enjoy With a cup of tea!
