Remember that one time when I made a coffee cake in a jar for one person and told you that it was a pain? Well, I have a new little something for one and it’s SOOOOOOO easy. Get ready to have your scone world rocked!
See, my go-to scone recipe is awesome but it makes 6 large scones and truth be told I’m more than tempted to eat alllllllllll of them in one sitting. But one? Well, one scone I can handle. One scone.
The awesome thing about this is that you can make annnnnnnny scone you want. How about chocolate and orange? Or blueberry? Or cherry pecan? The possibilities are insane and endless and you get to have a new scone every day of the week.
I’ll just put it this way: you’re welcome 😉
- 1/3 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- 1 Tbsp cold butter, cut into small cubes
- 2 1/2 Tbsp milk (I used nonfat)
- 2 Tbsp mix-in of choice (this particular scone is cranberry walnut!)
Preheat oven to 450. It’s good to note that I have a small food processor (I think a 1-cup capacity?) which worked perfectly for this, but you can certainly use your fingers to break up the butter into the flour.
In a food processor combine the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Pulse the butter into the dry ingredients until it breaks up and resembles crumbs. Next add in the mix-ins and milk and pulse until the dough pulls away from the side of the mixer, which should only take a moment. Carefully pull the dough away from the blade and shape into a circle, patting it to about 1/2 inch in thickness. Bake at 450 on a Silpat or a piece of parchment paper for 8-10 minutes until golden brown. Let cool slightly before digging in!
I’m telling you guys, I don’t even know what to do with myself now that I can have a different scone every day. For the rest of my life. Awesome!
