Oh Honey, Honey

I have been craving a proper tea spread (oh, England, how I miss you), especially some tasty scones! Additionally, I have recently developed a strong affinity for honey. Thus, I happened upon this delightful-looking recipe that I intend to create in a spare minute this week!

{Honey Scones}

2 cups all purpose flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 Tablespoon cold, unsalted butter cut into pieces
3 Tablespoon honey
1 cup cream

Preheat oven to 400F
Combine dry ingredients, cut in butter until crumbly.
Whisk honey and cream, add to the dry ingredients and mix with spoon - this will be thick, almost like dough

Press into greased scone pan... or... lightly flour a work surface, roll out the dough into a circle, cut into 8 triangle-shaped pieces and transfer each to a baking sheet lined with parchment.

Bake for approx 20 minutes or until golden brown on top. Cool for 5 minutes in pan then turn out onto wire rack and cool for another 5 minutes.

Serve warm with butter or whipped cream... and jam.
