Description

Biscuit meets scone—delicate lemon-kissed pastries are packed with dried currants and served with a smear of salted maple butter.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups All-purpose Flour, Plus More For Forming
  • ⅓ cups Granulated Sugar
  • 4 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ¾ teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • 1 stick Butter, Cold And Diced
  • ½ cups Dried Currants
  • ½ teaspoons Grated Lemon Zest
  • ¾ cups Cold Heavy Cream, Plus More For Tops
  • Coarse Raw Sugar, Such As Demerara Or Turbinado, For Sprinkling
  • FOR THE SALTED MAPLE BUTTER:
  • 6 Tablespoons Butter, At Room Temperature
  • 2 Tablespoons Pure Maple Syrup
  • ¼ teaspoons Flaky Sea Salt

Preparation

In a medium bowl, whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add cold diced butter and mix with a pastry cutter or your fingertips until butter is the size of peas. Stir in currants and lemon zest. Slowly drizzle in cream and mix with a fork just until dough begins to come together.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead to bring dough together. Pat out to a 1/2-inch thickness. Using a floured 3-inch round cookie cutter, cut out circles of dough and transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet, spacing 2-inches apart. Press together excess dough scraps and cut out more rounds. Freeze 15 minutes.

Preheat oven to 375°F. Brush tops of scones with more cream and sprinkle with sugar. Bake until set and lightly browned on top, 18 to 22 minutes. Let cool slightly on pan.

In a small bowl, stir together butter, maple syrup, and salt until smooth. Serve alongside warm scones.
