I spent most of mine alone but since I have time to enjoy it, I want something nearly as perfect. Yes, I am a bit (lot) demanding. But, even if I have time to eat it, that doesn’t mean I want something that takes too much time. That’s why my obvious and most frequent choice is: scone.

Really often, I can bake two or three scones because I know they’ll be eaten by my companion. However, I don’t want to force anyone to eat scones almost every day like me if he/she doesn’t want too. Maybe you’re familiar with this leftovers ‘problem’.

That’s why I created lots of:

I try to make scones’ recipe that are different to have different choices and of course to change from time to time, but I make sure to keep them quite alike so you are familiar with the making and baking and can create your own recipe.

How To Make a Scone For One

If you are interested in making scones like I do, under the 5 minutes mark, here is how to do so:

Preheat your oven before following the recipe so that the oven is really hot in the centre of the oven where the scone will be baking.

Cut a square of parchment paper and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of flour or sugar.

Use a spatula to mix the ingredients through all the steps.

Use your fingers or a pastry cutter to add the butter to the dry ingredients.

When your dough is formed, shape it by spreading it on the parchment paper with the palm of your hand.

Form a rectangle shape and flatten with your (floured if you want to be absolutely sure it doesn’t stick but I don’t use flour) hands. Fold the widths and then the lengths; Flatten with your hands and turn back your dough.

I really hope this article will help you create and shape your own scone. And remember, if you want to have two scones, you can always cut the dough in two with a sharp knife before baking. Enjoy!
