English Style Scones

9 servings


25 minutes

total time


2 cups all-purpose flour (10 ounces by weight)

4 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 cup sugar

6 tbsp unsalted butter (at room temperature)

2/3 cup whole milk

1 large egg


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

In a food processor, pulse the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar a couple times to combine.

Add the butter and pulse 7-10 times until the butter is completely distributed. You shouldn’t see any chunks of butter, and the mixture should have a sandy texture to it. Transfer to a large mixing bowl.

In a small bowl, whisk to combine the milk and egg. Save 2 tbsp of it for the egg wash later, and pour the rest into the mixing bowl with the dry ingredients.

Stir to combine with a spatula, until a rough dough forms.

Transfer to a lightly floured countertop and knead about 10 times until the dough comes together into a relatively smooth ball. Take care not to knead too much, or the dough will be tougher and not rise as high.

Roll the dough about an inch thick and use a 2.5″ cutter to cut about 7 circles. Re-roll the scraps and cut out another 2.

Place the scones onto a parchment or silicone mat lined baking sheet and brush the tops with the reserved egg wash.

Bake the scones for 13-15 minutes, until about tripled in height, and golden brown on the tops and bottoms. Enjoy!
