- 1In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
- 2Cut the butter into small pieces and blend in the flour mixture with a pastry blender.
- 3The mixture should look like coarse crumbs.
- 4In a small measuring cup combine the whipping cream, beaten egg and vanilla.
- 5Add this mixture to the flour mixture.
- 6Stir until just combined.
- 7Do not overmix this mixture.
- 8Knead dough gently on a lightly floured surface.
- 9Roll or pat the dough into a circle that is 7 inches round and about 3/4 to 1 inch thick.
- 10Cut this circle into 8 triangular sections.
- 11Place the scones on a parchment paper lined baking sheet or else a lightly greased pan.
- 12Make mixture of one well-beaten egg with 1 TBS heavy cream.
- 13Brush the scones with this mixture.
- 14Bake at 375 degrees for approximately 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
- 15These scones freeze very well.
- 16This recipe is very good as is but there are ways to jazz it up a little.
- 17When adding fruit or chocolate chips do so just before adding the cream mixture: You could add 1/3 cup dried cherries, or 1/3 cup miniature chocolate chips, or 1/2 cup raisins, or 2 tsp grated lemon peel and 1 TBS poppy seeds and 1 tsp almond extract (instead of vanilla), or 2 tsp grated orange peel and 1 tsp orange liquor (instead of vanilla).
