These barely sweet scones are delicious with strawberry jam. Try substituting other dried fruits, such as cranberries or blueberries, for the currants.

Recipe Ingredients for Classic Scones

2 cups all-purpose flour (about 9 ounces)
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons Butter
1/2 cup fat-free milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg white
1/3 cup dried currants
2 teaspoons fat-free milk
2 teaspoons turbinado or granulated sugar

Recipe Directions for Classic Scones

  1. Preheat oven to 425.

  2. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, 3 tablespoons granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt in a bowl; stir with a whisk. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal.

  3. Combine 1/2 cup milk, vanilla, and egg white in a bowl. Add milk mixture to flour mixture, stirring just until moist (dough will be soft). Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Sprinkle surface of dough with dried currants. With floured hands, knead 4 times or just until the currants are incorporated.

  4. Pat dough into an 8-inch circle on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cut dough into 12 wedges, cutting into, but not through, dough. Brush 2 teaspoons milk over surface of dough; sprinkle with 2 teaspoons turbinado sugar. Bake at 425 for 17 minutes or until golden. Serve warm, or cool on a wire rack.
