Lazy Morning Scones

Tomorrow is Saturday. A day that most people who don't have to get up to go to work at the crack of dawn like me get to sleep in and relax. Saturdays are for taking it easy, enjoying yourself, and recharging. Filling up with a good breakfast is the best way to start an easy-going day. Since you have a little extra time on your hands, this scone recipe is the perfect idea for starting out your morning. It's perfect for when you want to take some alone time, get in the kitchen, and enjoy the anti-social benefits of a Saturday morning. Studded with pepitas and made crumbly with butter and cream, this single serving pepita scone will be right up your alley. Cooking for a crowd? Try out one of my other scone recipes to suit you and your breakfast guests' needs.

Single Serving Pepita Scone (2)
 

Single Serving Pepita Scone
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
½ tsp baking powder
1 tbsp sugar
dash of salt
2 tbsp toasted pepitas
1 tbsp butter
2 tbsp heavy whipping cream

Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together. Cut the butter into cubes, and mix it into the dry ingredients with a fork. Once the dough is crumbly, add in the cream mixture along with the pepitas. Mix until just combined. Roll the dough out 1” thick on a lightly floured surface, and put it on a small baking stone. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the bottom is slightly browned. Allow the scone to rest for 5 minutes before removing it from the pan.
