  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 Tbsps unsalted butter room temperature
  • 4 Tbsps 10% cream see note below if using whole milk
  • 5 Tbsps water or 2/3 cup whole milk instead of cream and water
  • 1 egg

Orange Butter

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 5 canned mandarin segments


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper of silpat liner.
  • Whisk cream, water and egg together. Reserve 1 Tbsp egg mix for egg wash for the dough.
  • Add dry ingredients and butter to the food processor. Pulse a few times until it is grainy and butter is evenly distributed. It will dry and crumbly.
  • Add the egg mixture and pulse to incorporate. Dough will be rough and still crumbly.
  • Remove dough from food processor to a work surface. Knead the dough 8-10 times until it forms a dough ball that is relatively smooth and holds together.
  • Roll out using a bit of additional flour if needed to a 1 " circle. Don't use much or dough will be too dry.
  • Using the a cookie cutter of glass of your choice, cut out the scones. Rewrap the scraps and roll out again. Cut out additional scones. Try to use a light hand when re working the dough so the scones don't come out tough.
  • Place scones on baking sheet(s) and brush with the reserved egg wash.
  • Bake at 425 degrees for about 13 minutes. Scones should be puffy and golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool. Serve with flavoured butters and jam.

Orange Butter

  • Mash the butter and mandarin segments together until the orange pieces are evenly distributed. Serve with Scones.
