How to Make Traditional Cream Scones

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 450F. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or your fingers until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  2. Break eggs into a small bowl, reserving alittle of the white. Whisk eggs and stir in the cream. Add to the flour mixture, stirring with a fork until a soft dough forms.
  3. Place dough on a floured work surface, knead for about 30 seconds and roll into an oblong 3/4 inch thick. Cut into triangles, or into diamonds by making diagonal cuts in one direction and then in the other direction. Mix the reserved egg white with 1 tsp. water and brush over tops. Sprinkle with granulated sugar, if desired.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool slightly on wire rack and serve warm.
