Recipe by  

"This scone recipe is quick to make using a food processor and they are every bit as good as fancy bakery scones. You'll love them with tea! Variations: dried cranberries, blueberries, or raisins can be substituted for currants."

Directions

  1. Pulse flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a food processor. Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles oatmeal. Transfer to a bowl.
  2. Stir cream into flour mixture until just combined. Fold currants into dough. Transfer dough to a sheet of plastic wrap; fold to completely cover dough. Shape dough into a 1-inch thick disk and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon mat.
  4. Unwrap dough and cut into 8 wedges. Arrange wedges on the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 12 to 15 minutes.

This recipe was too dry. After more than 30 minutes it did not set. I had to add more cream to keep it together. I ended up cooking them in a pie dish to keep from crumbling. I also had to cook them twice the time called for. Taste is also bland. This did not work out!

At first bite, I thought these were good but average. However the more I ate, the more I appreciated the texture and flavor. Plan to use more cream than stated in the recipe to combine the ingredients thoroughly. These are excellent scones.

Had to add an extra bit of moisture to get it to stick together. Very nice! Added an extra 1/4 cup of currants to use the box I had.
