Fresh Scones in 12 Minutes March 30 2015
You'd amazed how fast and easy it is to make your own fresh-baked scones. Gormly's scone mixes come in 6 flavors, and all you have to do is add water. Our family likes Maple Pecan.
Add the specified amount of water and mix to form a moist dough. No kneading. It's meant to be spooned out and dropped onto a lightly greased baking sheet. Scones in the local bakery and coffee shops are often triangular-shaped. I'm not sure why. The English scones I've seen are always round or irregular. It doesn't matter much. You can shape the dough a little right on the sheet.
Bake for just 12 minutes in a 450 degree oven. Gormly's scones come out lightly-browned on the outside and always soft and moist on the inside, unlike some of the dry brick varieties that you literally have to soak in coffee!
They're delicious right out of the oven, but I add a glaze for that extra treat. Confectioners sugar and a little water is a simple base. Depending on the flavor scone, a dash of maple syrup or lemon juice is all it takes for a sweet drizzle-on finish.
And that's it. In the time it takes for the coffee to brew, you can literally make fresh morning scones. Like we say, Casually Gourmet is gourmet food made easy.
