Scottish Scones

For many years we’ve used this recipe that my mom came across in a newspaper. It’s especially nice with butter or jam. Preheat the oven to 375 ° F

Scottish Scones

1 1/2 cups flour

3/4 cup oats, uncooked

1/4 cup packed, heaping brown sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Combine the above ingredients in a medium-sized mixing bowl, then cut in:

1/2 cup cold butter (75 g. in Karachi), til crumbly as if for pastry. Then add:

1/2 cup milk

Mix to combine, knead the dough a few times (in the bowl).

Then place the dough on a buttered (or parchment lined) baking tray. Press into a 8 inch circle. Score 16 slices with a knife (see photo below), then bake for 20-25 minutes.


Ready for the oven
