Birthday Scones

Birthday Scones

If ever there was a food that summed up my 8 year old I think this would be it.  Sweet, fun, and lots of colorful sprinkles! 😀 She made these for a baking contest at our county fair this August and won first place!  These are really a sweet biscuit and definitely something kids can make.  My Biscuits 101 post can be found here for more tips and tricks if you haven’t made biscuits before or need help getting them to turn out better.

BIRTHDAY SCONES

2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 T baking powder
½ cup unsalted butter
½ cup sprinkles
¼ cup mini chocolate chips
¼ cup white chocolate chips
½ cup milk (more if needed)
1 egg

For egg wash:
1 egg
1 T cream

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Mix the flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder together in a medium bowl.
Cut in the butter with a pastry blender until smaller than the size of peas.
Stir in the sprinkles and chocolate chips.
Lightly beat the egg in a small bowl and mix with the milk.
Make a well in the flour mixture and pour in the milk.
Stir with a fork just until combined.  Add an extra 1-2 T of milk if needed to bring dough together.
Pat dough on a lightly floured surface until about ½ inch thick.  Cut with a 2- 2 ½ inch fluted circle cutter.
Place on an ungreased baking sheet, spacing circles so they are about 1/8 to 1/4 inch apart.
Combine the egg and cream for the egg wash, and brush tops of scones.
Bake for about 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
