Classic Tea Time Cream Scones

Recipe by Lalaloula
READY IN: 25mins




  • In a big bowl mix flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. If using vanilla bean add it now.
  • Add the butter and rub it in using two knives, a pastry blender or your finger tips. When the mixture resembles coarse crumbs, stop.
  • Add the beaten egg and enough cream to make a soft but not sticky dough.
  • Turn out onto a lightly floured board and knead lightly (not more than 8 times).
  • Pat down and cut out scones using a cookie cutter or a glass (I use a glass of 7.5 cm in diameter).
  • Place on a paper-lined baking sheet and brush with some cream if you like.
  • Bake in the pre-heated oven at 220°C/425°C for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned.
