How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut the butter into small pieces and blend into the flour mixture with a pastry blender or two knives. The mixture should look like coarse crumbs. In anther small bowl combine the whipping cream, beaten egg and vanilla. Add this mixture to the flour mixture. Stir until just combined. Do not over mix.
  • Knead dough gently on a lightly floured surface. Roll or pat the dough into a circle that is about 7 inches round and about 11/2 inches thick. Cut this circle into 8 triangular sections. Make a glaze of one well-beaten egg with 1 tablespoon cream. Brush the tops of the scones with this mixture. This helps to brown the tops of the scones during baking.
  • Bake for about 15 - 18 minutes or until lightly browned and a toothpick inserted into the center of a scone comes out clean. Remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool.

    Excellent base for playing around with a variety of scones. Couple things that I do is freeze the butter and then cut into pea sized pieces before pulsing in food processor, about twenty pulses is usually the right amount. The other thing is I use Alton Brown's weight measurements. Baking in extreme temperatures changes the flour density and weight is the best method for consistency. I think two cups equates to 177 grams.
