When we have a tea party, we always have these delightful scones that my sister makes! I’ve had so many requests, that I finally had to post the recipe…
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon baking soda
4 cups flour
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup softened butter
1 beaten egg
Stir the sour cream and baking soda together in a small bowl and set aside
Mix dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Cut in butter.
Stir in egg and sour cream mixture.
1 Tablespoon poppy seeds and lemon zest from 1-2 lemons
1 cup dried cranberries and orange zest from 1 orange
Add in optional ingredients.
Knead a bit on a lightly floured surface. Pat in a circle 1/2” thick. Cut with biscuit cutter or into wedges with pizza cutter (separating triangles slightly).
Bake on greased cookie sheet at 400 for 12-15 minutes, until light golden brown on bottoms.
If desired, make a powdered sugar glaze with milk, lemon juice or orange juice. Drizzle on top of scones when cooled.
