Best Scone Recipes: English Cream Scone Recipe
This is one of the best scone recipes I have found and I love scones.
Scones are very much like our biscuits, but sweeter and richer.
They are amazing with butter and jam and can be served warm or at room temperature.
Sift the dry ingredients together and cut in the butter with a wire pastry cutter.
Beat eggs until light, then mix them with the whipping cream or heavy cream. Add this liquid mix to the dry ingredients, stirring as little as possible.
Pat the dough or roll it out until it is about 1/4"-1/2" thick. Cut with a biscuit cutter and place on greased and floured baking pan. Or divide dough in half. Pat out each piece and put in greased and floured 7" cake pans. Cut in quarters with a knife so they can be pulled apart when baked.
Sprinkle the tops lightly with the cinnamon sugar mixture if desired. Bake at 425ºF for about 18 minutes until lightly golden.
Makes 12 scones.

Did You Know?...
This is a traditional English cream scone recipe and comes out light and tender every time.
Scones can be served at breakfast or brunch or as a bread item with lunch.
Or do as the British do, and serve them with a dollop of whipped cream (The English use clotted cream which is similar), some jam and a cup of tea.

Remember not to mix the wet and dry ingredients too much, once they have been mixed together.
As with muffins, stirring the scone batter as little as possible will result in a lighter, fluffier scone.
