Autumn Spiced Scones

Autumn Spiced Scones are in my oven right now, and I’ve got about 2 minutes until I pull them out. I can’t wait. My house smells like fall, and my tummy is about to be very happy.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Ingredients

2 & 1/2 cups of flour

2 tsp sugar

1 tbsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/2 stick of cold butter

2 eggs, beaten

3/4 cup milk

1 cup dried fruit

Milk and sugar for coating before baking

Directions

In a medium bowl combine eggs, milk, and dried fruit. Set this aside.

In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and spices . Use a pastry cutter to cut in butter into the flour mixture until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Add the egg mixture to flour mixture and stir until moistened.

Pour the dough out onto a lightly floured surface.

Knead the dough gently by folding until it is fairly smooth.

Lightly roll the dough into a nine-inch circle that is one inch high.

Cut the circle into eight identical wedges.

Place scones one inch apart on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.

Brush scones with milk and sprinkle with additional sugar.

Bake for 12 minutes or until golden.

Remove scones from oven and serve warm.
