Cream Scones

I've seen several recipes for biscuits made with cream instead of shortening and milk, and was curious how these would turn out. So I experimented with cream and some scones, and came up with this. They are very fluffy and light - and simple to do.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 c
    heavy cream
  • 1
    egg
  • 3 Tbsp

  • 2 Tbsp
    sugar
  • 1 1/2 c

How to Make Cream Scones

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 400° F. Beat cream with egg until well blended. Beat in sugar and butter until thick and creamy.
  2. Stir in 1 cup of the flour until well mixed. Gradually fold in the remaining flour with a rubber spatula until it forms a soft biscuit dough and leaves the sides of the bowl. Fold in dates or raisins if desired.
  3. Pat out onto a well-floured surface into 2 circles 3/4-inch thick. Cut each circle into 6 or 8 wedges. Place on ungreased baking sheet or baking stone, separated about 1/2 an inch.
  4. Bake for10-13 minutes until lightly browned on top. Cover with a clean towel to allow steam to soften the scones while they cool. Remove towel after 5 minutes.
  5. Options: may add cinnamon or ginger to the flour if desired, 1/2 to 1 teaspoon depending on taste. May also brush tops with melted butter after baking, and sprinkle with superfine sugar if desired.
