Classic Tea Scones Recipe

Today I’m excited to be joining the Seasonal Simplicity spring series once again as we share our favorite spring recipes with you. One of the things I’ve had more time for lately is baking.  It’s something I really love to do, but rarely seem to have time for. This Classic Tea Scones recipe is the one I grew up on and remember fondly making with my Mom.  Hope you don’t mind me sharing, Mom?!? Be sure to visit the other bloggers at the end of this post to see what delicious spring recipe they are sharing!

These Classic Tea Scones are simple, easy and perfect for breakfast, brunch or an afternoon snack.  I especially like serving them with whipped cream and jam.  Bonne Maman jam is one of my absolute favorites! The all-natural and full fruit taste is the perfect match for these scones. For serving, set up a station on your buffet, sideboard or kitchen island with all the fixings.

Classic Tea Scones


2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. sugar
6 tbsp. cold butter
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk


  1. In a large bowl, combine first four ingredients together.
  2. Cut in butter until mixture is course crumbs.
  3. Beat one whole egg and one egg yolk (save one for glazing scones).
  4. Add milk to eggs to make 3/4 cup liquid.
  5. Stir into flour mixture with fork just to moisten.
  6. Turn onto surface and knead lightly about 1/2 minute.
  7. Pat or roll into circle 1/2 inch thick. Cut into pie-shaped wedges
  8. Brush with egg white (beaten) and sprinkle with sugar.
  9. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and bake at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 12-15 minutes.
  10. Serve hot with jam. Enjoy!
