Miniature Caramelized Cheddar Scone Turkey Sandwiches
Sweet Cream Cheddar Scones
Equipment:Measuring cups and spoons
a shallow baking dish
PRE-HEAT your oven to 375 degrees.
Combine the flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar into the bottom of a shallow baking dish. Use your hands to combine the ingredients. Add the cube of butter to the mixture and then use the pastry blade to cut the butter into small cubes. The Smaller you make the cubes, the flakier your scones will be.
Once you have incorporated the butter into the flour, use your hands to squeeze the ingredients together. The goal is to make small shavings and clumps of butter and flour. Once combined, add in the heavy cream and use the pastry blade to fold the mixture together. You are looking for a slightly loose and crumbly consistency.
Form the dough into a flat rectangle about 2 inches high and 12 inches long. Cut this into 12 even pieces. Or, use a small circle cutter to cut out little biscuits.
Transport the scones to a baking sheet lined with parchment and place into the oven for 15-20 minutes. To check doneness, open the oven and gently peel up the top of one of the scones. It should be light and flakey.
Remove from the oven and allowing cooling.
