Baker’s Delight

These mini thumbprint jam scones are what we would call a “win-win” situation. Sneaky enough to be dessert, but not quite sugary enough to pass as breakfast too! What could be better? One recipe, two meals (kind of). These delicious little bit size treats are so yummy that you’ll be tempted to pop one in your mouth after the other, but we suggest sharing them instead – because doesn’t that always make your food taste better? A perfect treat for Mother’s Day, you could even surprise mom with some of these fresh baked scones and a nice cup of coffee for breakfast in bed! Read on for the recipe – we know that you’ll love these little treats just as much as we do!

Mini Thumbprint Jam Scones
Serves: 16 Scones
  • 2½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 6 Tbsp unsalted butter, cold, cubed
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • ⅓ cup jam
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a food processor, add flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, and butter. Pulsate until a course meal forms.
  2. Transfer everything into a large mixing bowl. Add heavy cream, egg, and vanilla, and knead dough inside bowl until it comes together. Divide dough into 4 balls.
  3. On a floured surface, flatten each ball of dough into ¾ inch thick disks. Cut each disk into 4 smaller, equal quarters. Place each scone on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
  4. Gently make a small indentation on top of each one with your thumb. Spoon a teaspoon of jam into each indentation. Bake for 15 minutes, or until bottoms are golden brown. Transfer scones to a wire rack to cool.
  5. While scones are cooling, make almond glaze. In a small microwave-safe bowl, heat milk for 30 seconds. Slowly whisk in powdered sugar and almond extract until glaze is free of lumps. Dip a spoon into glaze and drizzle over scones in random fashion.
