Ingredients
  1. 1¾ cups all-purpose flour
  2. 2 teaspoons baking powder
  3. 1½ teaspoons crushed pink peppercorns
  4. ½ teaspoon salt
  5. 4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  6. ¾ cup plus 2 tablespoons cold heavy whipping cream
  7. ½ teaspoon rose water, such as Nielson-Massey
  8. 1 recipe Pink Glaze (recipe follows)
  9. Garnish: ground pink peppercorns
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, peppercorns, and salt, whisking until blended. Using a pastry blender, cut butter into flour mixture until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. In a measuring cup, combine cream and rose water. Add cream mixture to flour mixture, stirring until a crumbly dough forms. Bring dough together with hands to form a ball. (If dough seems dry and won’t come together, add more cream, 1 tablespoon at a time, until uniformly moist.)
  5. On a lightly floured surface, turn out dough, and knead 3 to 4 times. Using a rolling pin, roll out dough to a ½-inch thickness. Using a 2½-inch flower-shaped cutter, cut 12 shapes from dough, rerolling scraps as necessary. Place scones 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet.
  6. Bake until edges of scones are golden brown and a wooden pick inserted in the centers comes out clean, approximately 18 minutes. Remove scones from baking sheet, and let cool completely on a wire rack.
  7. Spread Pink Glaze on tops of scones.
  8. Garnish with ground pink peppercorns, if desired.
