What’s a tea party without scones? These are the perfect marriage of the larger, more crumbly classic scone and the smaller, more crispy tea biscuit – making them perfect for dunking in either tea or coffee.
  • 2 1/2 cups sifted Swans Down® Cake Flour
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, chilled
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons half and half
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 350℉. Line sheet pan with parchment.
  2. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Grate cold butter into flour mixture. Work into flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Add half and half a little at a time until the dough comes together. Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface to 1 1/2 to 1 inch thickness. Cut out scones using a 2-inch round biscuit cutter.
  4. Place scones on prepared sheet pan, brush with half and half, sprinkle with granulated sugar and refrigerate for 20 minutes. Bake for 25 minutes. Rotate pan after 20 minutes.
