Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  2. Whisk together the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, and salt. in a mixing bowl. Cut in the butter with a knife or pastry cutter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the brown sugar.
  3. Whisk together the sour cream, light cream, and vanilla extract in a small bowl, then stir into the flour mixture until just moistened. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead briefly, for five or six turns. Pat or roll the dough out into a 1/2 inch thick round. Cut into 8 wedge-shaped pieces, and place onto the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 18 to 20 minutes.

Uses all purpose flour instead of wheat. Scones did not rise like I expected so they were dense. Flavor was good.

Perfect! The only change I made was to glaze them. Thanks for sharing!

I read the reviews first before making this recipe. I followed everyone's advice and used all purpose flour instead of whole wheat flour. They are really good. Moist and flavourful in the middle. I brushed them with a milk wash on top so they wouldnt dry out and they tasted amazing. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I would definitely recommend this recipe to anyone.

yum! I was out of eggs and had some sour cream to use up, so this was perfect. I used all-purpose flour instead of the whole wheat. I used skim milk instead of half-and-half, because that's all I had. I also added a smidgeon of nutmeg. Delicious! Light, fluffy, moist, and slightly sweet. :)

Delicious taste but extremely crumbly. Moist and flavourful in the middle. Followed other reviewers advice and used all purpose in lieu of whole wheat flour.
