These scones just came out of the oven. They smell and look amazing. I love scones and usually have to add either orange or lemon zest to perk up the WOW factor.

Ingredients

3
eggs, divided
1/2 c
whipping cream
1 1/2 tsp
vanilla
2 c
all-purpose flour
2 tsp
baking powder
1/4 tsp
salt
1/4 c
cold butter
1/4 c
finely chopped pitted dates
1/4 c
golden raisins or currants
1 tsp

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease large baking sheet or line with parchment paper; set aside.
Beat 2 eggs, cream and vanilla in medium bowl; set aside.
2
Conbine flour, baking powder and salt in medium bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in dates, raisins and orange zest if using. Add cream mixture; mix until dry ingredients are moistened.

With floured hands, knead dough 4 times on lightly floured surface. Place dough on prepared baking sheet; pat into 8-inch circle. With sharp wet knife, gently score dough into 6 wedges, cutting three-fourths of the way through dough.
Beat remaining egg with water; brush lightly over dough.

Bake 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes on wire rack. Cut into wedges. Serve warm with marmalade and whipped cream, if desired.
