Butter needs to be cold - right out of the fridge. I find cutting it into chunks helps it incorporate easier.
This is what the dough should look like once all the butter is in.
Incorporate until butter resembles the size of small peas.
Handle dough as little as possible.
It makes the scones more flaky, the less you handle it.
Cut the scones as big or small as you want.
I sprinkled these with baker's sugar from William Sonoma.
Finished product!! SOOOOO AMAZING! (If I do say so myself)
Warm & Fresh from the oven. This is a recipe you MUST try!
The extras: strawberry jelly, devonshire cream (fantastic!), and strawberry butter.
Hope everyone had a great weekend with their Mothers! xx
