“Cream Scones”

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

2. In a bowl mix together:
– 2 cups flour
– 1/3 cup sugar
– 1 Tablespoon baking powder
– 1/2 teaspoon salt
Then add 1 1/4 cups to 1 1/2 half cups heavy cream, stirring just until “a shaggy dough forms,” adding more cream if the dough seems too dry.

3. Scoop the dough into scone-shaped mounds and place them on a cookie sheet 2 inches apart; brush each scone with more cream (I sprinkled with extra sugar) and bake until golden for about 15 minutes. Transfer to a rack to cool.

That’s it!

Just be careful not to overmix the dough, or you’ll get heavy scones–you want your scones light.
