Fresh Cherry & Oat Scones

Last week I created my first baking recipe, and I perfected it two nights ago while Jason and his bandmate, Tom, were playing music in the livingroom.
They seemed to love them, and I hope you will too!





Summer, I'm bringing you in, Pt. V:
Fresh Cherry & Oat Scones
Photo on Photograzing


What I used:
  1. 2 mixing bowls
  2. 2 baking sheets
  3. a wisk, a fork, or whatever you disire for mixing
  4. Your sweet little hands!
Ingredients:
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 cup quick oats (Just for a little texture. Also, a bit for sprinkling on top of the scones.)
  • 1 egg (lightly beaten)
  • 3/4 cup milk (I used soymilk.)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fresh cherries
  • 6 tbls chilled butter (Cut into small pieces.)
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 400*F.
  2. Mix dry ingredients together in one bowl.
  3. Mix wet ingredients together in one bowl.
  4. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients.
  5. Pit cherries, cut into quarters.
  6. Add cherries to ingredients.
  7. Add the chilled butter, cut into tiny pieces.
  8. Knead mixture together with hands, and separate into 9 triangles (or whatever shape you prefer.)
  9. Place triangles onto your baking sheets with room for them to spread as they bake (I put 5 scones on one baking sheet and 4 on he other and they were fine.)
  10. Once the oven is preheated, bake the scones for 15 - 20 mins, then add a pinch of oats to the top of the scones.
  11. Bake for 5 more mins or until you can place a toothpick in those badboys and it comes out without anything wet and icky sticking to it.
  12. Remove scones from baking sheets to cool.
  13. Eat up!

Enjoy! Let me know how they come out and what you think of them!
