From Cooking-Love



I asked the maid in dulcet tone
To order me a buttered scone
The silly girl has been and gone
And ordered me a buttered scone

The Scones have origin in Scotland and managed to become very popular in America, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand. They are sweet or savory and have a texture of buttery and soft biscuit.
They accompany coffee, milk or tea of our breakfast. Consumed pleasantly at our work breaks as a quick snack.
In England they are sold packaged and are round, triangular or hexagonal in form. They can be sweet or savory and are often filled with raisins, fruit or jam. In the salty version with onion, cheese, bacon etc.

The quatrain tries to help us understand the different pronunciation of words in the rhyme.

Ingredients (16 pieces)

  • 1 apple
  • 350g (12.3 oz) flour, sifted
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 100g (3.5 oz) sugar
  • 130g (4.6 oz) butter, cold
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 60g (2.1 oz) almonds crushed
  • 60g (2.1 oz) cranberries
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • cinnamon for dusting
In food processor with the blade attachment, add the flour, the baking powder, sugar, butter, eggs and vanilla. Beat for very little just to be mixed and the mass resembles wet sand.
Transfer the mixture to a large bowl and add the crushed almonds and cranberries.
With the tips of your fingers and quick movements combine the ingredients together to get the dough a shape. No knead.
Peel and cut the apple into small pieces and add directly to the mixture of the bowl. Integrate them without much kneading into the dough. It looks like raw dough.
Divide the dough in two and make two round discs slightly flattened. Place in pan onto wax paper and scribe, in depth, into 8 pieces. Brush with milk and sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Bake in preheated oven at 180°C (356°F, Gas 4.2) for 20'-25'.
