Kevin’s Famous Scones


My sister and her family are visiting for the long weekend. One of my many great joys in seeing them is requesting one of my brother-in-laws baked goods, usually his famous scones! He has been generous enough to share his recipe with Prudent Baby saying, “I make these on days that I have to work on weekends. Although it is not fun missing weekend time with Sunshine and crew, I think they may look forward to it. Bad for the arteries but good for the heart.”

Doesn’t he sound dreamy?

Kevin’s not-top-secret scone recipe after the jump.


Scones
2.5 c flour
0.5 c sugar (I like turbinado sugar)
2.5 tsp. baking powder
0.5 tsp salt
6 Tblsp COLD unsalted butter
1 c heavy cream
0.5 c frozen fruit (~ish. Frozen helps keep the fruit intact. Blackberry and raspberry are my faves but have done peach, blueberry, chocolate chip, mango,

I use a stand mixer. Mix first 4 ingredients. Add butter (chopped) and mix to a meal. Add cream and mix. Add berries and mix. Place onto flat surface and form a circle. Sprinkle with more sugar and cut into wedges. Place wedges on baking sheet. Bake in 425 degree oven for 15-17 minutes.

I made these today and they are amazing! I'm so glad I made a double batch right from the start! These will be gone in a giff and I know they'll become a staple in our family. Kevin is now as famous in our home as his scones are! Thank you!

Can’t thank you enough for this recipe. They are delicious. My 4YO highly allergic son can’t get enough of them. He’s been telling everyone about your scones.
