Mini scones made in a mini muffin pan filled with your favorite jam, fruits, jelly or cream.  Like a tart, but still a scone.  The perfect mini dessert or teatime snack!



  • 2 Cups flour
  • 1/4 Cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 Cup unsalted butter, chilled
  • 1/2 Cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Favorite fruit fillings


  1. Preheat your oven to 425˚F.
  2. Using a food processor, combine all the dry ingredients together and then pulse in the cold butter until a course meal forms.  Pour in your cream, egg, and vanilla while the processor is whirling. Keep it on until you see a dough form. This should take less than a minute.
  3. Pinch and roll out 24 balls from the dough and place one ball in each cup of a greased 24 ct. mini muffin tin. Using a spoon, mallet, or tart press sprinkled with flour, make a well into each dough ball.
  4. In a preheated 425 degree oven, bake the cups for 10 minutes.  Remove the pan from the oven and using the same tool, re-press the well.
  5. Put the pan back into the oven and bake again for 5 more minutes or until the edges of the well are golden brown.
  6. After a few minutes, remove the cups from the pan and allow them to completely cool.  Fill with your favorite jams, jellies, creams and/or fruit.


Citrus Flavor: Add citrus zest to your dough or your favorite extract for more vibrant flavor

Large Muffin Tin: If you’d like bigger scone cups, make 12 from a regular size muffin tin

Freezer Instructions: Freeze unfilled scone cups in an airtight container for up to 3 months. Allow them to thaw before filling
