Ramsay Family Cream Scones
Scones are easy and fantastic! You will find that they even put the "hockey pucks" they sell in stores and chain cafes to shame!!
I've added suggested mix-ins, but it is not limited to the suggestions... let your imagination run with you on this one! There are so many variations that you can make and all would be delicious!!

How to Make Ramsay Family Cream Scones
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Mix dry ingredients thoroughly.
Cut in butter until mixture has a sandy texture.
Stir in your "mix-ins"
- In a separate bowl, mix eggs and cream together.
Pour liquid into dry mixture.
Stir together until the dough resembles a ball.
NOTE: If the dough ball is sticky and wet, add a few tablespoons of flour and work until the ball is dry, soft and doughy.
- Press dough ball into pie plate.
Using a plastic knife, slice dough ball into 8-12 wedges.
Place wedges on a cookie sheet about 1/4 inch apart.
IMPORTANT! Place cookie sheet on TOP 1/3 of oven!
Bake at 425 degrees for 12 minutes or until tops of scones are lightly browned.
