My Favorite British Cream Scones

My Favorite British Cream Scones created by gailanng

These are light, tender and so easy. I work with a bunch of U.K people and one of them was kind enough to share this recipe with me because I kept on complaining how difficult it is to make good scones. You can add currants, other dried fruit, citrus zest, nuts, etc. - just stir it into the flour mixture before you add the cream. I personally love them with dried cranberries and orange zest.

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 425°F
  • Stir flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl.
  • Stir in any additions.
  • Pour in 1 1/4 cups cream and stir to incorporate all the flour mixture. If you can't incorporate all the flour in 10-15 strokes, drizzle in a bit more cream ( about 1 T extra).
  • Turn the dough out on a floured surface and knead gently once or twice to bring together.
  • Pat into a half-inch-thick round and cut into wedges with a floured knife, or cut with a floured biscuit cutter.
  • (This will make 8 or so 3-inch round scones or around 15 2-inch round.) Place on a baking sheet and bake until just golden and firm on top, about 15 minutes depending on size.

    I added lemon zest and raisins. I'm sending one to you along with a note excusing you from this lovely Monday.
