Scones




Scones are baked pastries often served at tea time . I had it for the first time at panera bread and was totally knocked down by its'  taste and texture.I have never thought that scones could be made at home until I saw a video posted by chef john. It is such a wonderful recipe that could be made easily by anyone with the very basic items that we have  in our  pantry. It doesn't need cream cheese / cheese or any magical skills to deal with yeast .  Here is the recipe for you...

Ingredients :

 1. All-purpose flour - 1 3/4 cups 
 2.White sugar - 1/4 cup 
 3.Baking powder - 4 teaspoons 
 4.Salt - 1/8 teaspoon 
 5.Unsalted butter - 5 tablespoons 
 6.Milk - 1/2 cup
