Cream Scones

Recipe by  

"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.

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.

This was an extremely simple recipe to use, and the scones turned out tasty. I didn't have quite enough cream, but it was very forgiving when I added extra milk and butter to make up for it. Will definitely make again, and I'm thinking of adding dried cranberries and orange zest so my coworkers don't go to starbucks for scones anymore :D

I did not care for this recipe at all. It was just sweet biscuits with blueberries, not even close to a scone in texture. It was way to fluffy. I might modify the recipe to use for biscuits. It was an easy recipe but just nothing that resembled a proper scone.

I've used a similar recipe for years (mine has 2 eggs and 1/4 cup butter). If you increase the sugar to 1/4 cup you can add the zest of an orange and a cup of dried cranberries, frost when cool with orange glaze - and who needs Starbucks!

This recipe is simple and one of the quickest recipes ive used. i use it as a base mix and add whatever other ingredients, such as peaches, chocolate chips ect...

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 cutter to cut the dough into pie shaped wedges! This is a great tasting scone!

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 meal with some hot cocoa. I made much more than 6 though - maybe I cut them smaller. They turned out great!!!

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 Clotted Cream. The result was a flaky scone. Brilliant!
