Super Bowl Sunday Scones

  • Yield servings

Ingredients

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cold butter, cut into small cubes
1/2 cup currants (optional)
1 cup buttermilk
1 egg, slightly beaten

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425F.
  2. Mix dry ingredients together.
  3. Cut butter into flour mixture using a pastry knife or a food processor until crumbly. Add currants, if using, and mix gently to distribute.
  4. Pour buttermilk over flour mixture and stir with a fork or pulse in food processor until the dough gathers into a sticky ball. Do not over mix or the scones will be tough.
  5. On a floured surface, gently pat dough to 1/2-inch thick. Cut into 3-inch rounds using a floured cutter. Reshape leftover scraps with your fingers and cut more rounds. Discard any remaining dough.
  6. Place rounds 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Brush with beaten egg.
  7. Bake 10 to 12 minutes. Serve immediately.
