Jammy Scones
What's your Take?

Sweet and light, these scones can be gobbled up without any extra condiments, since the jam is baked right in.

What you'll need

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 14 tbsp. cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup of your favorite jam

How to make it

  1. Heat the oven to 425 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Use a pastry cutter or two knives to cut in the butter until the dough resembles coarse cornmeal. Avoid overhandling the dough.

  2. Add the buttermilk and combine with a fork, then use your hands to gather the dough into a ball.

  3. Pat out the dough on a lightly floured surface and form it with your hands into a rectangle about 1 inch thick. Spread jam on half the rectangle. Fold the other half onto the jammed half and roll out into a long rectangular shape about 3/4 inch thick.

  4. Cut the dough into 12 squares. Place the scones 1/2 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 14 to 15 minutes. Makes 12.
