Marzipan Scones

IMG_1821 (2)

If you have any marzipan left over after marzipaning your cake can I suggest marzipan scones. They are so good that I buy extra just to make them.

This recipe will make 6 x 65mm scones or 4 x 75mm scones

You will need:

  • 230g Plain Flour (plus extra for dusting)
  • 1tsp Cream of Tartar
  • ½ tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 30g Caster Sugar
  • 60g Butter
  • 100g Marzipan diced
  • 7 tbsp Cold Milk
  • 1 egg beaten (optional)

Method:

  • Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees grease baking sheet.
  • Sift the flour, cream of tartar and bicarbonate of soda together.
  • Mix in the caster sugar and butter into the flour until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Add the marzipan and stir gently until well distributed throughout the mixture.
  • Gradually add the milk until you have a soft ball of dough. If your dough is a little dry add another tablespoon of milk.
  • You do not want to over handle the dough or the will be hard and tough.
  • Turn out onto a floured surface and gently press out (I use my finger tips and hands to press out the dough rather than squash it with a rolling pin) until about 2.5cm or 1inch thick. Cut out to your desired size with your cookie cutter. I cut these scones into squares.
  • Place your scones on the baking sheet, reform the dough scraps and repeat until all the dough has been used.
  • Glaze with the beaten egg.
  • Bake for about 10mins or golden brown.

These are best on the day of cooking.
