Special Equipment

Ingredients

Scone

  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour (280 g)
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1-2 tbsp sugar
  • ½ cup butter (4 oz, 1 stick), cold and cut into pieces
  • 1/3 cup Silk Original Nog, + 1 Tbsp if needed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Topping

  • 1 Tbsp Silk Original Nog
  • 1 Tbsp turbinado sugar, coarse, like Sugar in the Raw
  • Nutmeg, for sprinkling

Glaze (optional, but who are we kidding?)

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Silk Original Nog
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Nutmeg, for dusting

Procedure

  • For the scones: Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking powder, nutmeg, and sugar (I used 1 Tbsp, but you can increase it if you’d like).
  • Cut the butter into small pieces, add it to the dry ingredients and cut in the butter with your hands or a pastry blender until only pea sized pieces of butter remain.
  • In a separate bowl combine the Silk Nog, egg, sour cream, and vanilla extract. Whisk together with a fork.
  • Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and mix with your hands or a spatula until a dough forms. Add another Tbsp of Silk Nog if the mixture appears too dry (mine did).
  • Shape the dough into a circle about 1” high on a floured surface, then cut into 8 pieces. Brush the tops of the scones with more Silk Nog, then sprinkle with turbinado sugar and additional nutmeg.
  • Place the scones on a half sheet baking pan lined with a Silpat or parchment paper and bake for 20-23 minutes until they are golden. If you're going to glaze the scones, allow them to fully cool.
  • For the glaze: In a small bowl, mix together the powdered sugar, Silk Nog, and vanilla extract until smooth. Drizzle generously over the scones. Dust with nutmeg. Store the scones in an air tight container.
