Why I Love This Recipe

Judi says, "Here's my scone recipe from the Halekulani Hotel in Hawaii. It is an uncomplicated formula that uses buttermilk and includes a sprinkling of currants. Pastry Chef Franz Schaier, suggests serving the scones with whipped Devonshire cream & strawberry jam, but if Devonshire cream is not a staple in your fridge, here's a substitute topping.


Ingredients You'll Need

1 1/2 Cups Flour
1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 tsp. Salt
3-4 T. Unsalted Butter, room temp.
2/3 Cup Buttermilk
1/2 Cup Currants
1 Egg, beaten


Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.


Lightly grease a baking sheet.


Sift together flour, baking soda, and salt. Blend in butter. Mix in the buttermilk & currants.


Turn dough onto a generously floured surface. Roll to a thickness of 1/2", then cut into 2-2 1/2" rounds. Place on baking sheet, about 2" apart. Brush tops with beaten egg.


Bake 12-15 minutes, until golden brown. Serve with topping and strawberry jam.


DEVONSHIRE CREAM SUBSTITUTE


1/2 Cup Cream Cheese


2 T. Sugar


1/2 Cup Sour Cream


1 tsp. Lemon Juice


Whip topping ingredients together until fluffy.
