I started collecting tea cups 4 years ago knowing that one day I would have a tea party. I have a wee obsession with them and love to find them when I'm out shopping and i have had many given to me as gifts! I'm quite fond of my collection. Well, I decided that "one day" was here!
Swedish Scones Recipe:
2 C. Flour
1/4 C. Sugar
1/8 tsp. Salt
1 Tbsp. Baking Powder
1 1/4 C. Heavy Whipping Cream (you can also use whipping cream or half and half)
Add in any fresh, frozen or dried fruit. Add extracts to enhance flavor and rinds. For the orange scones I used the rind of one orange, the juice and about a tsp. of orange extract. My favorite combos are craisins with orange and blueberries with lemon.
With a spoon, mix all the ingredients until wet. Form into ball. Press into circle on floured counter about 3/4" thick. Cut into 8 pie shapes (or make two smaller circles for 16 smaller scones.) Spread butter on the tops and sprinkle with course sugar like Sugar in the Raw. Bake at 350 degrees until tops are firm around 13 minutes.
1 C. Powdered Sugar
1 Tbsp. Fresh Lemon or Orange Juice
1/2 tsp. Lemon or Orange Extract
1 Tbsp. Melted Butter
2 Tbsp. Heavy Whipping Cream
Whisk until smooth. Drizzle over warm scones.
Enjoy! xo Melanie
