|Felipe Femur the skeleton, here. I want to share the recipe for one of the best tea time snacks this side of the grave. Tomb-Scones (Tombscones) are to die for! They’re sure to please ghouls and guests alike. You can sink them in milk and tea or bury them in delicious clotted cream or jam! The recipe makes a lot of scones so save some for your friends, throw a Halloween party, or entomb the extras in the fridge until you’re ready for a delicious snack. Each Tomb-scone is like a little plot of edible land to bury in your mouth, but that doesn’t mean it tastes like dirt. It’s super yummy so don’t be fooled! Decorate the Tomb-Scones any way you’d like. Use chocolate skulls like I did, or write RIP in frosting. You can even add food dye to make the dough look like grey stone. Just follow the 11 easy steps below and you’ll have yourself a tea party favorite to serve your friends in no time at all.|
Make some Tomb-Scones by following these 11 easy steps.
Assemble all your ingredients. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Mix dry ingredients (flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar) in a bowl. Stir until well combined.
Cut in butter.
In a separate bowl, whisk egg until well beaten.
Add whipping cream to the beaten egg. Mix well and add to your dry mix.
(Optional) Add handful of chocolate chips. Stir until mixed.
Roll dough into a ball, pack it down with your hands, and put on floured surface. Rub flour on your rolling pin and flatten dough.
Cut flattened dough into 1 – 1/2 to 2 inch strips. Cut each strip into three inch segments and round one edge with knife to make the top of the tombstone scone.
(Optional) Melt chocolate melts and pour into skull mold. Refrigerate until hard.
Bake scones for 13 minutes or until golden brown.
