What Is A Scone

A scone is a type of baked bread or cake that originated in the United Kingdom. It is a quick bread, meaning that it is leavened with baking powder or baking soda instead of yeast, allowing it to be prepared and baked relatively quickly.

Scones are typically made with flour, sugar, baking powder, butter, milk, and sometimes eggs. The dough is mixed until it comes together, then it is usually shaped into rounds and baked. Scones can be sweet or savory, and they may include additional ingredients such as dried fruits, nuts, chocolate chips, or cheese, depending on the recipe.

Scones are often served with clotted cream and jam in the traditional British cream tea. They can be enjoyed for breakfast, brunch, or as a snack with tea or coffee. The texture of a well-made scone is usually tender and crumbly.

Ingredients

2 cups Bisquick baking mix

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/3 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed

1/2 cup milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup raisins or currants (optional)

1 tablespoon milk (for brushing the tops)

Powdered sugar for dusting (optional)

How to Make Bisquick Scones

  • Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine Bisquick baking mix and granulated sugar. Mix well to ensure the sugar is evenly distributed.
  • Add the cold, cubed butter to the dry ingredients. Use a pastry cutter or your fingertips to cut the butter into the mix until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Pour in the milk and vanilla extract. Stir the mixture until just combined. If desired, fold in raisins or currants at this stage.
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead it gently a few times until it comes together. Pat or roll the dough into a circle about 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick.
  • Cut out scones from the dough and place them on the prepared baking sheet, leaving a little space between each.
  • Brush the tops of the scones with a little milk. This will give them a golden color during baking.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until the scones are golden brown on top.

Can You Freeze Scones

Yes, you can freeze scones to extend their shelf life. Here’s a simple guide on how to freeze scones:

  1. Bake the Scones: Start by baking the scones as you normally would, following your favorite recipe.
  2. Cool Completely: Allow the scones to cool completely at room temperature. If you freeze them while they’re still warm, condensation can form, leading to a loss of quality.
  3. Wrap Individually: Wrap each scone individually in plastic wrap or aluminum foil. This helps prevent freezer burn and keeps the scones fresh.
  4. Place in a Freezer Bag or Container: Once individually wrapped, place the scones in a labeled freezer bag or airtight container. Make sure to remove as much air as possible to minimize the risk of freezer burn.
  5. Label and Date: It’s a good practice to label the freezer bag or container with the date and type of scones. This makes it easier to keep track of what’s in your freezer and when it was frozen.
  6. Freeze: Put the bag or container in the freezer. Scones can generally be stored in the freezer for up to three months.
  7. Thawing and Reheating: When you’re ready to enjoy the scones, remove them from the freezer, unwrap, and let them thaw at room temperature. To refresh them, you can warm them in the oven at a low temperature for a few minutes. This will help restore their texture and flavor.

Keep in mind that freezing can alter the texture of baked goods to some extent, so while frozen and reheated scones may not be exactly the same as freshly baked ones, they can still be a convenient and tasty option.

Tips & Tricks

  • Use Cold Ingredients: Just like with traditional scones, it’s important to use cold ingredients, especially cold butter. This helps create a flaky texture in the scones.
  • Don’t Overmix: Be careful not to overmix the dough. Mix the ingredients until just combined to avoid developing too much gluten, which can result in tough scones.
  • Handle the Dough Gently: Handle the dough as little as possible to prevent the butter from melting too much. Use a light touch when shaping the dough to maintain its flakiness.
  • Cut with a Sharp Cutter: When cutting the scones into rounds, use a sharp cutter and press straight down without twisting. Twisting the cutter can seal the edges of the scones and prevent them from rising properly.
  • Brush with Milk or Egg Wash: Before baking, brush the tops of the scones with milk or an egg wash (a beaten egg mixed with a little water) to give them a golden brown color and a glossy finish.
  • Don’t Overbake: Keep an eye on the scones while they’re baking to prevent them from drying out. Bake them just until they’re golden brown on top and cooked through.
  • Serve Warm: Scones are best enjoyed fresh out of the oven while still warm. Serve them with clotted cream, jam, or butter for a delicious treat.
  • Store Properly: If you have leftovers, store the scones in an airtight container at room temperature for up to two days.

FAQs about cheesecloth

To prevent scones from spreading too much, make sure the dough is cold when it goes into the oven. Chilling the dough in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes before baking can help maintain its shape.

Yes, you can freeze unbaked scone dough for later use. Shape the dough into rounds, place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and freeze until solid. Once frozen, transfer the dough rounds to a freezer-safe bag or container and store them for up to three months. When ready to bake, simply place the frozen dough rounds on a baking sheet and bake as directed, adding a few extra minutes to the baking time.

Absolutely! Bisquick scones are highly customizable. You can add ingredients like dried fruit, nuts, chocolate chips, or spices to the dough to create your own unique flavor combinations.
