Cream Scones. A simple recipe for cream scones that can be modified with sweet or savory ingredients, or enjoyed in their pure form.
Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl. Using a pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in butter until largest pieces are the size of small peas.
With a sharp knife or a pastry scraper, cut the round into eight wedges; separate the wedges. Brush the scones with additional heavy cream and sprinkle with additional sugar. Bake until the scones are deep golden and a toothpick inserted into the center of a wedge comes out clean, 18 to 22 minutes. Let the scones cool for 10 to 15 minutes before serving.
