Strawberry Jelly Scones

Strawberry Jelly Scones

Method

For the scones

  • Preheat oven to 200* C (390* F) Fan.
  • Put the mandarin zest in a food processor and set aside.
  • Simmer the mandarin juice and cloves for 2-3 minutes in a saucepan.
  • Remove the cloves with a spoon and add the dried cranberries. Continue to simmer until they soak up all of the juice.
  • Transfer to a bowl and set aside to cool.
  • To the food processor (with the mandarin zest) add the flour, baking powder, sugar, butter and a pinch of salt.
  • Beat for 1 minute, until the mixture looks like coarse meal.
  • Add the eggs and beat until the mixture turns into a ball and comes together to form a dough.
  • Generously dust a working surface with flour and place the dough on it.
  • Put the cranberries to the food processor and beat until they are very finely grated.
  • Add them to the dough and knead to distribute.
  • It is VERY important to knead the dough very well so the scones can be turn out light and fluffy.
  • If the dough is too sticky, dust with more flour to help it along.
  • Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough to a sheet 2 cm thick.
  • Dust a 5 cm circular cookie cutter or a coffee cup and cut out little round “cakes”.
  • When all of the dough is finished, make a small well in the center of each circle with your thumb.
  • Brush with some milk and put some strawberry jelly or cranberry sauce in each well.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the scones rise and turn golden.
  • When ready, remove from oven and set on a wire rack to cool.

For the filling

  • Beat the heavy cream in a mixer with the whisk attachment.
  • When it starts to form peaks, slowly add the caster sugar.
  • When it becomes whipped cream add the zest and almond extract and fold with a spatula.
  • Transfer filling to a piping bag.
  • When the scones are cool, cut in half, horizontally, with a sharp knife.
  • Pipe filling over the lower half of the scones and cover with top half.
  • Serve at room temperature.
