Scones with Fresh Strawberries
Ingredients 140 grams of flour; 2 teaspoons baking powder; pinch of salt; 2 tablespoons frozen grated butter; about 120 ml of cold milk; 1 teaspoon vanilla extract; 1 tablespoon sugar; 1 tablespoon milk , for glaze; whipped cream; homemade strawberry jam. Materials: baking sheet; Cutter around 6 cm (or hearts shape ) Preparation Preheat oven to 240 ° C. Sift the dry ingredients ( flour, sugar , baking powder and salt) three times . Rub the frozen butter through the dough until you get a kind of coarse bread crumbs (pea size ) . Add the milk and mix with a wooden spoon until you get a sticky dough. The wetter the dough , the lighter the scones will be! Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and put a bit of flour on top. To make the dough more homogeneous you fold the dough gently 4 or 5 times, until the dough is soft . To get a layered effect in your scones you fold the dough instead of kneading. Press the dough into a rectangle about 15 by 10 cm ( 2 cm thick) . Grab a cutter of 6 cm and press a scone from the dough ( do not twist the cutter ) and place the scones gently on a baking tray ( do not press ). Repeat until the dough runs out. Brush the top with milk and bake for 10 minutes in the oven . Cut the scones open and smear the bottom with strawberry jam . Spoon 1 tablespoon of whipped cream on it and some slices of fresh strawberries. Cover with the top and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
