Traditional Scone

From

These scones are great with just some butter or jam. For an extra special treat, top with Mock Devonshire Cream. Real Devonshire Cream is made from nonpastuerized milk from cows in Devon. This is a healthier version!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Flour
  • 1 Tbsp. Baking Powder
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 cup Butter; cut into small pieces
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 cup Half-and-Half

Directions

In mixing bowl combine dry ingredients. Cut in butter. Mix together egg and ½ and ½ then add to mixing bowl. Mix just until all dry ingredients are moistened. Gather into a ball and transfer to lightly floured surface. Knead a few times. Pat into an 8 inch circle. Using a pizza cutter cut into 8 wedges. Place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 425º oven for about 12 minutes or until slightly brown.

Make ahead tip: After cutting dough into 8 wedges, place on baking sheet, cover loosely with plastic wrap and place in freezer until wedges are firm. Then place in a freezer safe bag. To bake, remove from freezer about 10 minutes prior to baking.
