Simply Lover-ly Scones
I'm not much into Valentines day and the overload of pink and red decor, traditions, blah, blah. But... I did want to make something that could be translated into a Valentines day treat for all of you. Simple, pretty, scones you can make any time of year! I made them pink just for all of you *wink*.
3 1/4 cups of all purpose flour, plus a little for dusting
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
4 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp white sugar
1 cup of milk, plus a little extra for brushing the tops
Food colouring (optional, as desired)
Bake for 10 - 12 minutes in a preheated 425F oven or until tops start to get golden.
Cool on a wire rack, or serve warm with butter or preserves with a cup of your favourite tea.
If you really want to go for broke, you could drizzle with a little icing sugar frosting, or top with fresh fruit and whipped cream. Oh yum!
