Classic Cream Scones
I think you'll agree when I say these scones are some of the best ever! And they take up to only 25 minutes from start to finish... ooh they're so good!
What You'll Need:
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
cup butter, cubed
cup whipping cream
1 large egg
teaspoons vanilla extract
1 egg white
1 teaspoon water
What To Do:
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Combine first 4 ingredients. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or fork until crumbly.
- Whisk together cream, egg, and vanilla; add to flour mixture, stirring just until moistened.
- Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Pat dough to 1/2-inch thickness; cut with a 2-1/2-inch round cutter, and place on baking sheets.
- Whisk together egg white and 1 teaspoon water; brush mixture over scones. Sprinkle scones with additional sugar. Bake 13 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
