Cream Scones


"Scones are a kind of sweet biscuit. They are very common in the United Kingdom. Here is a pretty good recipe that I made after a lot of trial and error. These are quite easy. You can add a bit more sugar if you want. These taste awesome with grape or blackberry jelly!"

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  2. Sift together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add the butter, cream, and milk; stir until a spongy dough has formed. Turn the dough out onto a lightly-floured surface. Pat the dough into a rectangle about 3/4 inch thick and 7 inches wide. Cut into 6 triangles. Arrange on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 10 to 13 minutes.

I added 3/4 cups of sugar instaed of the tablespoon. It was very good and, doing it my way, would be great with a cup of black coffee.

I had no all purpose flour so I used self-rising! it came out very good! I also shaped the dough into a circle instead of a rectangle! Made cutting the scones so much easier! I used my pizza cut...

I made these scones one night for dinner when my kids wanted pancakes but I didn't have any eggs. I too used 3/4 cup sugar and added a big handful of dried blueberries. This made a fantastic m...

Very good recipe. First time I ever made scones and it was very simple. I made two batches-one regular w/choc. chips and then another with cinnamon, brown sugar & allspice. With both recipes I u...

Quick. Easy. Yummy! Instead of melting the butter, I chopped cold butter into very small pieces and cut it into the flour mixture, and I also added a bit more cream. Very good with real British ...

Love recipes that are easy and leave room for improvisation. I made Blackberry/Raspberry scones with fresh fruit instead of dried. The dough was sticky but it all worked out well. So tasty! Migh...
