    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375 °F.
    2. 2
      Place all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl, or in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.
    3. 3
      Cut butter into dry ingredients until it resembles coarse meal.
    4. 4
      Stir together ¾ cup cream and vanilla and add to dough.
    5. 5
      Mix just until dough comes together.
    6. 6
      Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Roll dough twice to an inch thick, each time folding in half (this is the secret to a flaky scone).

      Roll dough to ¾-1 inch thick and cut desired shapes.
    8. 8
      Place on a greased or parchment-lined baking sheet and brush with remaining cream.

      These were pretty good. i decided to try them with 2/3 whole wheat flour, which made them rather heavy, but still a very nice scone. I used Cookgirl's advice and made some lemon curd to go with. Yum!

      My friend and I got together today and baked these and served the scones with Marie Alice's Lemon Curd. Wasn't quite sure if I understood Step #6 considering I'm not a baker, but everything turned out right thank goodness. I used whole milk for the dough and brushed heavy cream on the tops of the scones. Thanks!
