Strawberry Shortcake Scones
Equipment:
Assorted mixing bowls
Measuring cups/spoons
Assorted round cutters
Baking sheet lined with parchment
Pastry board and some flour
Rolling pin
Pastry brush
Wire cooling rack
Serrated knife
Whisk
Ingredients:
4 cups all-purpose flour
5 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup granulated white sugar
1/2 lb cold, sweet unsalted butter (diced)
1/2 cup rolled oats
pinch of salt
1/4-1/2 cup heavy cream + 4 eggs, whisked together
1 tsp pure vanilla
juice and zest from 1 lemon
1/2 cup coarse sugar
2 tbsp poppy seeds
3 pints fresh strawberries, cleaned & halved
1/2 cup ginger ale
2 tbsp orange marmalade
juice & zest of 1 lemon
1 pint whipped cream (whipped with 1 tbsp confectioner's sugar & vanilla)
mint leaves for garnish
Method:
1. Place the flour, oats, baking powder, salt, sugar, poppy seeds and butter in a bowl.
2. Using just your fingertips, gently combine these until a rough meal is formed.
3. Add the egg mixture, vanilla, lemon juice/zest, reserving 3 tbsp and once again with your fingertips gently blend together to form a sticky dough.
4. Dust the board with some flour and roll out the dough to about 3/4 inches thick.
5. Cut scones and gently place them on the baking sheet. Repeat using all the dough, re-rolling gently so scones don't become tough.
6. With the remaining egg mixture, brush the tops and sprinkle with the coarse sugar.
7. Bake in a preheated 325 degree oven for about 15-20 minutes or golden brown on top and scones just spring back when touched in the middle. When done, place on wire rack to cool.
8. While scones are baking, prepare the strawberry sauce by combining the strawberries, marmalade, lemon juice/zest and ginger ale in a small bowl and reserve.
9. When scones are cool, slice in half with the serrated knife. Place the bottom of the scone on a plate, spoon some of the sauce and berries on top and cover with the top of the scone.
10. Place a dollop of whipped cream on top, add more strawberries and a mint leaf for garnish. Enjoy!
