This long-time English favorite is truly the perfect mate for a cup of tea. And don't forget to drink your tea English style: with sugar and just a little cream.

What You'll Need

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 teaspoon sugar, divided
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened
  • 1 can (5 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 1 egg

What to Do

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, 1/4 cup sugar, the baking powder, and salt; mix well. Cut in the butter until crumbly.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the evaporated milk and the egg; whisk until combined. Add to the flour mixture and stir just until blended.
  4. On a floured surface, knead the dough 5 to 6 times. Lightly pat to a 1/2-inch thickness and, using a 2-inch round biscuit cutter, cut into round scones.
  5. Place on an ungreased baking sheet and sprinkle with the remaining 1 teaspoon sugar.
  6. Bake for 11 to 15 minutes, or until light golden.


Add some chopped pecans or walnuts, and/or raisins or sweetened dried cranberries to the scones, if you'd like. Serve them warm with butter and lemon curd or my English Rose Jelly on the side.
