  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour plus more for dusting
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 tablespoons chilled salted butter cut into cubes
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Bailey's Irish Cream
  • 1 large egg beaten to blend
  • 1 tablespoon Turbinado Sugar
  • For the glaze:
  • 1 tablespoon Bailey's Irish Cream
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the baking powder, salt, 1 1/2 cups flour and sugar. Add the butter and mix with a pastry blender or fork until pea-size pieces form. Add the milk, irish cream and mix with a fork until a shaggy dough forms. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and gently knead until dough begins to form a ball, approximately 3 - 4 times.
  3. Gently pat dough into a 1-inch-thick circle. Using a 2 1/2-inch round biscuit cutter, cut out scones. Combine the scraps and repeat, patting out and cutting to make 8 scones. Transfer baking sheet lined with parchment and brush with the egg. Sprinkle the tops with the turbinado sugar.
  4. Bake the scones until golden brown, 12-15 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool to room temperature.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together the Irish cream and sugar until smooth. Drizzle the mixture over the scones.
  6. Serve at room temperature with jam, if desired.
