To make Buttery British Scones, you need:-All-purpose flour-Large eggs-Granulated sugar-Lemon juice-Milk-Unsalted butter-Baking powder-Vanilla extractFor finishing:-Granulated sugar-Water-Large egg
To begin, preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line baking sheets with parchment. Next, add the baking powder, sugar, and flour to a large bowl and mix until combined. Then, cut in the cold butter until it looks like sand.
Now, in a different bowl, whisk the milk, eggs, and lemon juice together. Pour these ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until the dough forms. Using your hands, make it into a smooth ball.
Now, roll out the dough on a floured surface and use a round cookie cutter to make 2 1/4-inch circles. Dip the cutter in flour before each one. Then, reroll the leftover dough and cut a few more.
Place the scones onto the baking sheets and whisk together the water and egg. Brush the tops with the egg wash and then sprinkle a bit of sugar on top. Let them rest for 15 minutes.
Finally, bake for 14 to 15 minutes or until they are lightly golden brown on top. Move them to a wire rack to cool before serving warm with butter, cream, and fruit spread.
