Matcha Scones

I am on an absolute matcha kick right now. So much so that I just bought myself an ice cream maker for green tea ice cream (stay tuned). These were the perfect Sunday morning treat.


Step 1: Combine flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder in large bowl. Use sieve to add matcha. Grate frozen butter and add to dry ingredients. Mix with fork or pastry cutter.



Step 2: In a separate bowl, combine cream, egg and vanilla. Add to dry ingredients and mix.


Step 3: Pour dough onto counter and form into disc. Use pastry cutter to cut into 8 equal pieces.




Step 4: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place scones onto baking sheet 2 inches apart. Place in fridge for 15-20 minutes.

Step 5: Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden.

Step 6: Move to cooling rack and make icing while scones cool.

Step 7: Use mixer to mix cream cheese, powder sugar and matcha. Add cream 1 tbsp at a time until you reach a thick but runny consistency.

Step 8: Use fork to drizzle icing across cooled scones.





Makes 8 large scones

Ingredients:

Scones

2 cups flour

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 tsp salt

2 and 1/2 tsp baking powder

1 and 1/2 tbsp matcha

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup heavy cream

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla

Icing

2 oz cream cheese

1/2 cup powder sugar

1 tsp matcha

1/4 cup cream (or milk)


Directions:

Step 1: Combine flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder in large bowl. Use sieve to add matcha. Grate frozen butter and add to dry ingredients. Mix with fork or pastry cutter.

Step 2: In a separate bowl, combine cream, egg and vanilla. Add to dry ingredients and mix.

Step 3: Pour dough onto counter and form into disc. Use pastry cutter to cut into 8 equal pieces.

Step 4: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place scones onto baking sheet 2 inches apart. Place in fridge for 15-20 minutes.

Step 5: Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden.

Step 6: Move to cooling rack and make icing while scones cool.

Step 7: Use mixer to mix cream cheese, powder sugar and matcha. Add cream 1 tbsp at a time until you reach a thick but runny consistency.

Step 8: Use fork to drizzle icing across cooled scones.


NOTES:

These would be tasty if you wanted to add dried cranberries or chopped nuts.

Some people brush cream on top of their scones but I don't find that necessary since I drizzle delicious icing on top.

I used heavy cream but it would also be good with half and half.

If you want to make smaller scones, you can divide dough into 2 discs and cut into 12-16 wedges.
