Light and fluffy Irish Scone Recipe.

Legend has it that this is the same Irish scone recipe The Storyteller uses when he’s visiting the Emerald Island. Light, sweet, and delicious these scones are sure to delight. So bake a fresh batch, get a good book, a warm cup of tea, and enjoy.

 Ingredients:

3 1/4 cups white flour,

3 tsp. baking powder,

1/2 Cup white sugar,

1/4 tsp. salt,

10 Tbl. unsalted butter,

1 Cup milk, 

1/2 cup sour cream.

Ingredients for optional egg wash:

1 egg, 

1/4 Cup water.

 

Directions

Preheat oven to 400F.

Combine all dry ingredients.

Cut butter into 1/4 inch cubes and smash them into the dry ingredients with a fork. After combining the butter the mixture should have the consistency of course corn-meal.

Make a well in the center of the mix. Pour the milk and sour cream into the well. If you are adding extra ingredients (vanilla, blueberries, orange zest, etc.) now is the time to add them.

Work the mixture until combined. Be careful not to overwork the dough!

The dough will have a sticky consistency. I’ve achieved my best results mixing when using a sturdy butter paddle to work the dough. However, a bread mixer or hands with plastic gloves should also work to combine the ingredients.

Place the dough on a heavily floured surface and gently press into a 10x20 inch rectangle.

Cut your 10x20 inch rectangle into two 10x10 inch squares. Then with two intersecting lines cut each square into four quarters. Lastly, cutting diagonally divide your squares into 16 triangles. 

(Optional egg wash) Mix one egg yolk with 1/4 cup water, and gently brush it onto the top of each scone.

Place in the oven for 10-15 minutes.
