How to make it

  • Blend flour, sugar, baking powder in food processor
  • Add butter, cutting in by turning the processor on and off, on and off
  • Mixture will resemble coarse meal
  • Remove from processor and put in large bowl
  • Make well in center and add 3/4 cup of the cream
  • Using a fork, stir until just moist
  • Place dough on a floured surface (can use floured wax paper)
  • Gently knead until smooth, about 6 or 8 times
  • Divide dough in half
  • Pat each portion into 3/4 inch thick round
  • Cut each round into 6 wedges (like when cutting a pie)
  • Place the wedges on a lightly greased baking sheet
  • Space them about 1 inch apart
  • Brush tops with remaining 2 tablespoons cream
  • Bake scones at 400 degrees until light brown, about 18 minutes.
  • Cool completely, or grab a cuppa of coffee or tea and eat one while still warm
  • When ready to serve re-warm in 350°F oven
  • I have made them without using a food processor. Can use hand, pastry blender, or large fork to combine and make crumbly.
