How to Make Traditional Cream Scones


  • 1Preheat 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.
  • 2Break 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.
  • 3Place 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.
  • 4Bake in preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool slightly on wire rack and serve warm.
