Scone Recipes: Cream Scones

These sweet scones are a little different because it doesn't contain any dried fruit. It is a good one to use for a cream tea with clotted cream and strawberry jam.

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • Additional sugar to sprinkle on top of scones

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

    Combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Cut in butter with a pastry blender until mixture is crumbly.

    Whip together cream, egg, and vanilla. Add to flour mixture, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened.

    Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Pat dough to 1/2-inch thickness; cut with a 2 1/2-inch round cutter or slice into triangles, and place on baking sheet.

    Whisk together egg white and 1 teaspoon water; brush mixture over tops of scones. Sprinkle scones with additional sugar.

    Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
