Animal Scones

We love to make scones at our house.    I used animal shaped cookie cutters for this batch, but you can make a scone into any shape you wish.  Below is the recipe with step by step pictures.  We recommend adult supervision while make these scones.  I hope you enjoy making them as much as we do. 



3 Cups Flour

6 Tabelspoons Unsalted Butter   (omit the salt if using salted butter)

1/3 Cups Sugar

1 Teaspoon Salt

2 Teaspoons Baking Soda

4 Teaspoons Cream of Tarter

2 Eggs plus enough Milk to equal a total of 1 Cup of Liquid 

Makes about 20 Animal Scones

Bake at 425º for 8 - 9 Minutes

Put all of the dry ingredients with the butter into a food processor (Cuisinart) and mix together well.  Next, while the food processor is running, add the 1 cup of liquid ingredients.  Remove the dough from the processor and place it on a floured  surface.  The dough will be quite sticky so you want your hands, the rolling pin and the working surface well floured.  Make the dough into a round disk. You can either pat the disk flat or roll it out until it is 1/2" thick.  Next, make the scones any shape you would like (animal, circle, triangle, etc.)  and put them on a well greased pan.  Use a tooth pick to test if the scones are done.  When the tooth pick comes out clean and the scones are a light brown color, they are done.  Place the scones on a rack to cool.  Enjoy!
