    K9 Owned's Note:

    Traditional at English Tea time - these are some of the simplest and best scones I have made. The recipe was originally from a 1987 Canadian Living Cookbook.

    1. 1
      Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
    2. 2
      Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
    3. 3
      In a small bowl, combine eggs, egg yolk and cream - beat with a fork until well blended.
    4. 4
      Add the liquid mix all at once to the dry ingredients, stirring with a fork to make a soft, slightly sticky dough - add a little more cream if necessary.
    5. 5
      Press into a ball and knead gently on a floured surface about 10 times.
    6. 6
      Roll out dough to 1/2 inch thick and cut in to triangles or rounds.
    7. 7
      Place on an ungreased baking sheet and brush with egg white then sprinkle lightly with sugar.
    8. 8
      Bake in a pre-heated 425 degree oven for 12 - 15 minutes or until golden.
    9. 9
      Now the very best part. Serve them warm with butter, raspberry or strawberry jam and to be really traditional you may also add a dollop of Devonshire cream. Whipping cream is a good substitute.

      K9 Owned. These biscuits are wonderful. I loved the simplicity. They were quick and easy to make, with ingredients that I always have on hand. These biscuits were just perfect, big, crisp and tender, full of flavor. They were equally as good cold as they were warm or toasted. I served them with Holiday Cranberry Butter for a real decadent treat. I`ll be making these often. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful recipe. Made for Name That Ingredient Tag Game.

      A really nice scone that was easy to make. I found the dough to be an easy-to-work-with texture. I did end up adding about 1/2 cup of raisins before adding the liquid mixture. The scones came out nice and moist with great color from the egg white wash. I think this is a great basic scone recipe that is perfect for all kinds of additional ingredients - blueberries, chocolate chips, etc. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT 8.
