Steep a pot of Earl Grey and enjoy your homemade Cream Scones with orange marmalade, lemon curd, or clotted cream.

  • 2 Cups Unbleached Flour
  • 3 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 5 Tablespoons Cold Butter (Cut Into Pieces)
  • 1 Cup Plus 1 Tablespoons Cold Heavy Whipping Cream
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In large-size bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and kosher salt. Using a pastry blender, cut butter into flour mixture until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add 1-cup cream, stirring until mixture is evenly moist. If dough seems dry, add more cream, 1 tablespoon at a time. Working gently, bring mixture together with hands until a dough forms.
  3. Turn out dough onto lightly flour surface. Knead gently 4 to 5 times. Using rolling pin roll dough to 1-inch thickness. Using a 2-inch fluted round cutter cut 12 scones from dough, rerolling scraps as necessary. Place scones 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet.
  4. Brush tops of scones with remaining 1-tablespoon cream.
  5. Place in oven for 20 minutes until edges are golden brown.
  6. Remove from oven and let cool 5 minutes before removing from baking sheet.
  7. Transfer to serving plate and serve warm.
