Simple & Delicious Pomegranate Scones

Ingredients

 

250g flour
70g sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
8 tbsp unsalted butter (very cold, even frozen)
45g pomegranate seeds
115g sour cream
1 egg

Method

Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and preheat oven to 200°C

In a bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Grate butter into flour mixture on the large holes of a box grater; use your fingers to work in butter, then stir in pomegranates.

In a small bowl, whisk cream and egg until smooth.

Using a fork, stir sour cream mixture into flour mixture until large dough clumps form. Use your hands to press the dough against the bowl into a ball. The dough will be sticky in places, and there may not seem to be enough liquid at first, but as you press, the dough will come together.

Place on a lightly floured surface and pat into a 20cm circle about 2cm thick. Sprinkle with remaining 1 tsp. of sugar. Use a sharp knife to cut into 8 triangles; place on a baking tray, about 2.5cm apart.

Bake until golden, about 15 to 17 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes and serve warm or at room temperature.
