Scones are a simple and delightful treat that can be prepared in a short amount of time. In point of fact, they are a form of bread known as a quick bread. They are an essential part of afternoon tea, and the best way to enjoy them is with some jam on top. There are a variety of fillings that can be used in scones, but the traditional recipe calls for flour, sugar, butter, eggs, and baking powder. Before rolling out the dough and cutting it into various shapes, the dough is typically kneaded for only a few moments. After that, the scones go into the oven to be baked until they have a golden brown color. They are best enjoyed while still warm and accompanied by a dollop of butter and a spread of your favorite jam. Scones are the ideal dessert for any event, regardless of whether you want to indulge in one all by yourself or split one with a group of friends.

- You might need to use clean hands to complete bringing the dough together.
- The dough should be rolled out and pressed into circles on a floured surface.
- Use a sharp knife to cut the disc into sizable scones.
- After cutting the scones into wedges, gently arrange them on the baking sheet that has been prepared, leaving some space between each one for spreading.
- Bake the scones on the baking sheet for 18 to 20 minutes or until they are baked through and have a light golden color.
- The scones should be taken out of the oven when still warm and placed on a wire rack to cool thoroughly.
- Make the glaze while the scones are cooling.
