Serenity Scones

Submitted by: Rachelle Dolan

Lightly sweet, tasty scone with the added benefit of calming chamomile.

Prep Time: Prep time: 20 min. Cook time 15 min.
Serving Size: makes 12-16 scones
  • 2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 c. milk (approx.)
  • 1 tsp. chamomile tea leaves
  • 1/4 c. hot water
  • optional glaze: 1/2 c. powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp. brewed chamomile tea
Brew chamomile tea in 1/4 c. hot water. Steep 5 min. then strain.
Mix the dry ingredients together in a medium bowl. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles course crumbs. Stir in the egg. (You may also add extras at this time like a handful of nuts or dried fruit if desired.)
Add the brewed tea, then gradually add milk until a thick dough is formed. (It may take more or less than 1/2 c.) Turn out the mixture onto a floured board and knead lightly. Roll out the dough to 3/4" thickness and cut into rounds with a 2" cookie cutter or use a drinking glass of same proportion. (Or use a shot glass for mini-scones!) Gather the trimmings and lightly knead, roll, and cut. Place the rounds about 1" apart on a lightly greased baking sheet. Brush the tops with a little beaten egg or milk. Bake in a preheated 450°F oven for 10-15 min., or until golden brown. Serve warm.
For "Sweet Serenity," drizzle the tops with optional glaze. Mix ½ c. powdered sugar and 2-3 tbsp. brewed chamomile tea.
