Divine-looking scones with rainbow sugar sprinkles – so cute with your cup of tea! Click here for the original recipe source.
Ingredients:

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 cup white sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons unsalted butter (cold)
1/2 cup mix-ins (mini chocolate chips, dried cranberries, etc.)
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup sour cream
Toppings: Berry preserves (jam) and/or coarse sanding sugar
Method:
– Preheat oven to 400°.
– Mix dry ingredients in a bowl and “sift” them together using a wire whisk to combine and break up any lumps.
– Using a fork or a pastry blender, cut in the butter until you get pea-sized lumps. Stir in any mix-ins.
Combine milk and sour cream and add to dry ingredients, combine gently–careful not to overmix.
– Turn dough out onto lightly-floured surface and pat into a round shape with domed center. Use a sharp knife or pastry scraper to cut into 8 wedges.
– Use a teaspoon to create a small depression in the top of each wedge, spoon in some preserves (e.g. seedless blackberry).
– Sprinkle with coarse sanding sugar and bake on a cookie sheet for 10-15 minutes (or until lightly browned).
