Late Night Scones

A danger of having a fully stocked ‘pantry’ when you start watching Paul Hollywood shows as escapism late at night is that your partner may turn to you and say “you know, we have everything you need to make those…”

This is basically this scone recipe from the BBC. The only notes I’ll add is that I used bread flour (which , indeed I did not use all the milk. I did mix in a combination of raisins and dried cranberries, but in retrospect, I didn’t use enough. I added maybe a cup, all told, probably should have been 1 1/2 or 2 cups.

Last picture here is meant to illustrate a couple of things. The scone in the top left of the image is one of the first ones cut out after rolling out, and is properly nearly cylindrical. The scone in the bottom right was right near the edge and if you look at the right side, you can see the bit that was the edge of the rolled out dough, that was not actually cut by the cookie cutter. As a result, that edge did not allow for complete rising. Important note, make sure the dough is bigger than the cutter! The third scone, bottom left, was cut from the reassembled scraps. and you can see how misshapen it is, and that it didn’t rise as high as the first one. Still tasted delightful though.
