British Scones

I love going to British teas—we have a popular tearoom here in Albuquerque. These scones have an outstanding flavor and tender flaky texture.—Carole Jasier, Lecanto, Florida

    8 scones


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Whisk the eggs, 1/3 cup cream and vanilla; stir into crumb mixture just until moistened. Turn onto a floured surface; gently knead 6-8 times.

  • Bake at 400° for 12-14 minutes or until browned. Remove to a wire rack. Serve warm.
