DIRECTIONS

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, 1/4 cup sugar, baking power, and salt. Cut butter into dry ingredients. Stir in fruit (if desired).
  • Add whipping cream and stir by hand just until dough forms. Dough will be soft and sticky. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently until dough just holds together. Press dough into a 10-inch circle, 1-inch thick. Cut into wedges. Place scones on baking sheet and sprinkle scones with remaining sugar.
  • Bake 15-20 minutes at 400 degrees or until scones are a light golden brown on top.
