This recipe was born because I needed to go to the grocery store. I didn't have many things in the pantry because we had been traveling but I did have honey and everything to make scones. So this was a great breakfast when you're slim on ingredients. It is nothing crazy exciting, but it is a good solid recipe. It will get you through the rough patches.
Simple Fresh Milled Honey Scones
Makes 8 Scones
2 1/3 cups fresh milled wheat flour ( 1 cup hard white grains, 1 cups soft wheat grains milled fine)
3 Tbsp arrowroot flour/starch
3 Tbsp raw sugar or coconut sugar
1 TBS baking powder
1/2 tsp pink salt
5 TBS unsalted COLD butter
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup honey
2 tbsp powdered sugar
1 tbsp milk
Mix together until smooth. Use a spoon to drizzle on top of the scones!
Preheat oven to 375. Mill your grain on finest setting. Mill 1 cup of hard white, and 1 cup of soft white grains. Add all the dry ingredients to a large bowl. Use a cheese grater to grate 5 tbsp of cold butter. Toss the butter into the dry ingredients. Use your hands to carefully disperse the butter throughout the flour. Add the cream and honey lightly mix with your hands. It will be crumbly at this point which is great. Turn the dough out onto the counter and fold it onto itself and press the dough down until the flour and crumbles are combined. Shape the dough into a circle that is about an inch thick.
Use a sharp knife, and rinse it in cold water so the dough doesn't stick to the knife. Slice the circle into 8 triangles. Place each triangle on a baking sheet with plenty of room to spread and rise. Bake at 375 for 12-15 minutes.
Let them cool and drizzle a simple powdered sugar and milk icing on top. We enjoy these without any icing!
