Einkorn Scones

I continue to be surprised by the many recipes I can create using einkorn wheat. I asked my daughter to use her incredible scone recipe with my einkorn flour. If you enjoy a treat but want it to be tasty and healthy, this is it.

Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose einkorn flour

1 tbsp baking powder

3 tbls sugar

1/4 tsp salt

6 tbls cold unsalted butter

1/2 cup half & half

zest from one lemon

1/2 cup of currants

3 1/2 tsp of finely ground earl grey tea leaves

Directions

Mix all the dry ingredients together and place in a blender.  Add the cold butter and pulse until you have a crumbly consistency.

pour into a mixing bowl

mix the egg and half&half before adding to the dry ingredients.  make a small well in the middle of the dry ingredients and gently stir in the wet ingredients.

mix in currants as you stir

unfold dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently (don't over-knead, keep crumbly) into a flat circle about 10-12 in across

cut into desired shapes and brush with some extra half and half and sprinkle with sugar before baking in an oven of 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until golden.
