Light and Airy Oat Scones are a wonderful treat on a cold morning, and they're easy enough to throw together while the coffee brews. These classic British tea time pastries are made super tender with oat flour.
5Tbsp cold unsalted butter cut in pieces
1large egg lightly beaten
Preheat oven to 400F
Put the dry ingredients in the bowl of a processor and pulse to combine.
Then drop in the butter pieces and pulse about 20 times till crumbly.
With the processor going, pour in the egg and cream through the feed tube and process just until it comes together…probably about 15 seconds.
Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and form into a plump 6 inch disc. Cut the disk in half, and the each half into 3, for a total of 6 scones.
Gently place the scones on a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet. Sprinkle a little sugar and oats over the scones. Bake for about 15 minutes until lightly browned and firm. Cool a few minutes on the baking sheet and then transfer to a rack
