Perfect Scone Baking Tips and Tricks
There are a few pointers that you should be aware of so that you can take your scones to the next level.
First of all, avoid overmixing the dough. Doing so could prevent your scones from rising the way they should! So, be sure that everything is evenly mixed together. Don’t mix the dough more than you need to.
When you cut your dough into wedges, if you find that is too crumbly, try adding a small spoonful of heavy whipping cream. That should do the trick and get your dough to a consistency that allows for cutting.
After cutting the dough into wedges, lightly press the edges to round them out a bit and give them that classic scone shape.
Finally, scones rise better the colder they are when they enter the oven. If your dough has gotten warm from mixing or perhaps being close to your hot oven, place your baking pan and cut dough into the fridge for one or two minutes to give it a nice chill. This will help the dough rise a bit better!
Let Your Oven Fully Preheat
Make sure that your oven is properly preheated before placing your scones inside. If the temperature is still rising when you begin baking the scones, it could prevent them from cooking to perfection.
Trust me, an extra couple of minutes of waiting (to let your oven fully heat up) is worth it!
