  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together the dry ingredients.
  3. Gradually add enough of the cream to form a soft dough.
  4. Knead lightly on a floured board, handling the dough gently to retain the air needed for the scones to rise.
  5. Roll out to a 1/2- to 3/4-inch thickness.
  6. Cut into 2 inch rounds with a sharp knife or use a cookie cutter.
  7. Arrange on an ungreased baking sheet, leaving a 1/2 inch space around each one.
  8. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.
