Pinwheel Scones

By PaisleyJade - Friday, June 11, 2010

The other day I made the most disgusting scones ever.  They were so bad that I nearly threw them away... but in the end I smothered them with jam and cream and gave them away.

I was chatting with a friend about my disaster scones and she mentioned that there was a local café that always had the most delicious scones, so she decided to ask the owners what scone recipe they used.  They smugly told her that they used bought scone mix.

I made a mental note right then and there that I was going to buy some scone mix when I did the groceries this week.

And here we are on my grocery shopping day - home with my 'scone mix' boysenberry pinwheel scones... and they are delicious!

I dare you to try scone mix if you haven't already... I'm in love.

Pinwheel Scone Recipe

Make up your scone mix (or properly made scone dough from scratch if you are a really clever person) and roll it out onto a floured board with a rolling pin.

You can get really creative here and make either sweet or savoury pinwheel scones.  I spread butter over my dough and then sprinkled sugar and cinnamon on top, but you could add sultanas, chocolate chips, jam... get creative!  If you decided to do savoury pinwheels you could add grated cheese, herbs, chopped ham or bacon etc. 

Roll your tasty sheet of scone dough into a long roll, then cut into small circles with a knife and place on a greased tray.

Pop them into a preheated oven (220°C) and bake for 10-15 minutes.

Once out of the oven, I iced them with boysenberry icing (icing sugar, a dash of hot water and a tablespoon or two of boysenberry jam mixed together) and let it melt and drool (I like that word) over the scones while they were still on the hot tray.

I then quickly made myself a cup of tea and sneaked into my bedroom to sample them before the kids arrived home from school (and gobbled them all up).

Mmmmmm - yay for scone mix!!
