Cookie-size coffee cake or scone?!

Really love my new creation.  I baked this little coffee cake/scone in square muffin tray.  Turned out not very pretty but amazingly tasty.   It is not too sweet and have a lovely smell of berry tea.  It has light and slightly crumble texture of biscuits but it uses a lot less butter.  Have to type out the recipe before I forget!

scone 055The ingredients is basically cream cheese base on coffee cake

  • 3/4 cup of unsalted butter
  • 250g of cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 4 tablespoon of honey
  • 2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1 tiny pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 tea bag of berry tea (love the smell and taste of this tea –bought that from first Hoppy Europe 2010 trip in Amsterdam)
  • 2 eggs

Sift flour, baking power, salt and tea together set aside.

Use paddle attachment of your stand mixer to cream butter & sugar first, then add cream cheese and honey.  Continue to mix until light and fluffy.  Add egg in one and a time.  Beat until egg completely incorporated.  Stop the mixer. Preheat oven to 350F

Use a big specular to  fold in the flour in 3 batches.  Avoid over mix.

Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly golden brown.    Kitchen smells so good when it is done!

    Hey Amanda! I tried these “scookies” or “cones” today. Excellent! It’s a bit soft for a cookie, but perfect as a scone. DId you say you added cream cheese to the batter? I like the tang. Are those black dots vanilla seeds? How did you get it to shape so perfectly?

      I actually officially call this recipe – berry tea scone when I check the recipe link ;-) the black bits are berry tea. Did not put in vanilla because I was afraid that will over power th subtle tea & honey favour. I love the tang from cream cheese too. I always use disher (ice-cream scope) to evenly divide up the dough — ensure more uniform baking. But I don’t like the shape, will bake it in a muffin tin next so so they are look a bit more squared and raise better.
