  1. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in butter or margarine until crumbly. Make a well in the center. Beat egg until light and frothy, and mix in milk; pour all at once into well. Stir lightly to form a soft dough. Add more milk if needed.
  2. Turn dough out onto a floured surface, and knead 8 to 10 times. Pat or roll out to 3/4 inch thickness. Using a round cookie cutter, push straight down to cut. Arrange well apart on a greased baking sheet. Make a deep hollow in the center of each biscuit. Drop a small spoonful of jam into each hollow.
  3. Bake in a preheated 450 degrees F (230 degrees C) oven for 12 to 15 minutes. Serve hot.

This recipe was difficult to make and made a mess all over my baking sheets. The end result was basically a biscuit with a glob of jam in the middle.

This recipe was extremely easy to put together. I did need to add a little more milk to make the dough come together. I used parchment paper instead of greasing the baking sheet. The trick is to...

This reminds me of a local treat we get at our State fair. They call them "fair scones". The only difference is that instead of a circle, they are cut in a rectangle and the jam is put on half o...
