Honey Scones for Tea Time or Anytime!
Here's the recipe:
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 cup cold unsalted butter, diced
1/4 cup cold cream cheese, diced
3 tablespoons honey
1 cup whipped cream, plus another spoonful or two to glaze the top of the scones
Sugar to sprinkle the top of scones
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mix dry ingredients; cut in butter and cream cheese, until mixture is in course crumbs.
In a separate bowl, whisk honey and cream together.
Add cream mixture to dry ingredients; stir until it is a moist dough.
Turn onto a lightly floured surface; roll dough to 1/2 inch or 3/4 thickness.
Place scones 2 inches apart on baking sheet; glaze with cream, sprinkle with sugar.
Bake about 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
