10 servings (serving size: 1 scone and 1 tablespoon jam)

Cake flour gives these scones a light, moist texture. You can make and chill the jam up to two weeks ahead. The scones can be baked a day in advance; store and serve the scones at room temperature.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

Lightly spoon 3 cups flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Place 3 cups flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, and salt in a food processor; pulse 2 to 3 times or until combined. Add butter; pulse 10 times or until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add buttermilk, rind, and lemon juice; pulse until just combined. Scrape dough onto a lightly floured surface with a rubber spatula; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon flour (dough will be soft).

Step 3

With floured hands, pat dough into a 4-inch circle; place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Pat dough into an 8-inch circle. Cut dough into 10 wedges, cutting into but not through dough. Brush egg white over dough; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon sugar. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until golden. Cool on a wire rack. Serve with Quick Blackberry Jam.

I found the scones to have a heavy, chewy texture. The flavor was lovely so I may try them again but use a traditional mixing and shaping technique instead of mixing in the food processor.

These scones were kind of bland and definitely tasted better with a jam/jelly. These are better eaten on the same day. They were drier the day after. I would probably make these again though.
