Warming Trend...A spot of TEA...and Jelly Scones!!!
When the north wind blows and icicles are forming, it's time to curl up with a cup of hot tea, a wonderful book and these FABULOUS...
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cold butter
1/2 cup whipping cream (or sour cream)
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
4 teaspoons jelly
In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine the egg, cream and orange peel. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
On a greased baking sheet, pat dough into an 8-in. circle; cut into eight wedges. Do not separate wedges. Make a thumbprint in each wedge, about 1/4 in. deep. Fill indentation with jelly. Bake at 400° for 13-15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. Yield: 8 servings.
(I often substitute sour cream for the half & half, since I always have it on hand, and it works great!!!)
*tip* BAKE THEM AHEAD + FREEZE FOR A FUSS-FREE CHRISTMAS MORNING BRUNCH!
"Kettle's on, cups are waiting
favorite chairs anticipating.
