Peach Nutmeg Scone Mix Cooking Instructions

To Prepare: Preheat oven to 400°. Empty mix into a large bowl. In a separate bowl, blend 1 large egg, 1 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract and 1/3 cup milk. Add egg mixture to scone mix and stir just until moistened. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently 10-12 strokes or until smooth. Pat dough to 3/4” thickness. Cut out scones using a 2-1/2” to 3” biscuit cutter and place 1” apart on a lightly greased baking sheet. Brush tops with milk and sprinkle with sugar. Bake 15-18 minutes or until done. Serve warm with butter. Makes 8-9 scones.
