Today’s Daily Prompt: Write about a time you had a Goldilocks experience, exploring different choices and finally arriving at the “just right”.
Many people like to eat scones with a little bit of jam, but I prefer to have the “sweetness” baked into the scones. Over the years, I’ve experimented with a basic recipe and finally came up with this “just right” one.
Chocolate Chip Raisin Scones
2 cups all purpose flour
4 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small pieces
¾ cup raisins
½ cup white chocolate chips
1 large egg
½ cup milk
2-3 tablespoons condensed milk
Dash of grated nutmeg (optional)
How to Make
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Mix flour, baking powder, and salt in one bowl.
- Whisk the egg, milk, sugar, condensed milk and nutmeg together in another bowl.
- Drop the butter into the flour. Use your fingers to rub the butter into the flour until the mixture is like course pebbles
- Pour in the milk mixture. Mix with a fork until the dough is evenly moist.
- Add the chocolate chips and raisins. Mix with a fork or the tips of your fingers. Dough will be sticky.
- Spoon about 15 tablespoons of dough onto a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Enjoy these scrumptious, sweet scones with tea or coffee.
