Scones- the tiny edition


I wanted to make super tiny scones so that I don’t tempt myself with the nice big ones and go crazy eating them throughout the day. I decided to indulge myself with these bite sized pieces- lessening the guilt and upping the cutesy factor.

These teeny tiny scones were the work of a moment without too much work, and absolutely gratifying.. I mean how could you not love them. I finished the entire batch in a couple of hours- Jam, butter, honey.. it work with everything.

Few ingredients & quick to make.

one cup of flour, 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp baking soda and a fat knob of vegetable fat/butter.. this here is 2 tbsp of fat in 1 cup flour

using a fork or a cookie cutter or simply the tips of your thumbs & finger mix the flour and the fat so that the mixture starts resembling wet clumped sand. A grainy mixture, making sure all the fat is incorporated well into the flour and distributed evenly.

the next step is pouring in the butter milk into the mixture and stirring the flour so that it just about starts to com together. Kneading is NOT REQUIRED. use your hand mixer or stand mixer or in my case just a spoon. I used in about 3 tbsp of buttermilk.

This is what my fat disc of mixture looked like. I wanted to flatten it because these are teeny scones, but if you’re looking for a regular size, just start cutting up this fat disc with your round cookie cutter..

I rolled the disc to about 1/4 of an inch thick and using a tiny round cookie cutter (1/2 inch) I cut these adorable little circles.. I didn’t know if I wanted to eat them or use them as decorations..

assembling them onto a slightly greased baking dish, they are ready for their make up Gently brush them using the leftover buttermilk. I didn’t bother with an egg wash, but you can if you want.

I baked them at 200℃ for not more than 12-15 minutes, and they didn’t puff up too much, since they’re tiny and made of thinner discs, but they rose up enough to slice them & slather with jam.

Look at these beautiful pieces.. they were so fluffy and tasty and indescribable..

Enjoy!!!!!
