Flakey, buttery scones are totally my jam. Whip these up in 15 minutes. They are perfect for weekend brunch and Mother's Day!
Preheat oven to 375F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.
Cut the butter into small chunks and rub the butter into the flour (or you can use a pastry cutter) until the mixture looks like fine crumbs.
In another bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs and vanilla.
Create a well in the middle of the flour mixture and pour in the wet ingredients. With a fork, gently mix the flour into the wet ingredients until the dough comes together.
Pour it out onto a lightly floured surface and pat the dough together until it's one cohesive ball.
I like to wrap it in plastic and let it chill in the fridge for about 10-15 minutes.
After you rest the dough, roll it out about 1 1/4 inch thick. Cut the dough into circles, squares or triangles, whatever your heart desires.
Brush with egg wash and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until the scones have risen and are beautifully golden brown on the outside.
Serve immediately! :)
