I’ve said it many many times that baking is definitely not my forte. However, bakery and pastry are my favorite things to eat 🙂 The smell of the baking bread can make me very happy. This may sound a bit funny, but making scones had been one of my to-do things for the longest time. I finally got around with baking me some scones….sour cream scones !! gosh…so good!!!!! I love sour cream and I love scones. Combine the two and I got lots of love. You gotta try this sour cream scones. I know you are not going to regret it. Well, the only regret I have was that I ate too much of these !!! and with some ice cream on top of it too (I’m crazy about the combination of warm and cold)!!! These are just perfect for breakfast with some jelly, peanut butter (I can make everything work with peanut butter in case you don’t know already), cottage cheese or pretty much whatever you want it to go with. I love me some sour cream scones for sure !!! Next thing I’m gonna try is saffron cream scones….oo..la..la…!!
SOUR CREAM SCONES
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour more for dusting
- 2/3 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup low fat sour cream
- 3 tablespoons butter or substitute with coconut oil melted and cooled, which I did
- 1 large egg white lightly beaten
- 1/3 cup raisins
- Cooking spray
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat your oven to 400°.
Combine the ingredient for topping and set aside. Combine the dry ingredients, both flours, brown sugar, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large mixing bowl. Make sure you mix thoroughly.
In another bowl, combine the sour cream, butter, and egg white. Slowly add this to the flour mixture and stir in the raisin. Stir everything until it is moist and the dough should stay together and doesn't fall apart. If it's too dry, add a bit of milk just so that the dough comes together. The dough should not stick to your hand
Lightly dust your work area with a bit of flour. Place the dough on the work surface and knead for about 1 minute. Divide the dough into two and then shape each into a 6-inch disc. Spray a cooking sheet with cooking spray. Place both dough on the cooking sheet and cut each into 6 wedges but don't cut all the way so they don't separate. Sprinkle both doughs with the sugar and cinnamon mixture. Pop into the oven and bake at 400 F for 20 minutes or until lightly brown. It should be slightly crispy on the outside and crumbly inside. Serve warm or at room temperature
