Perfect Cream Scones
Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! I’m super excited because this is actually my first Mother’s Day as a new mom! And truth be told, I made these yesterday so it’s one less thing to do today, but it is actually a pretty quick and easy recipe.
The dry ingredients are mixed together, cold butter is cut in with a pastry cutter, and then the wet ingredients are added. My dough was a bit too crumbly at first, so I drizzled in some more heavy cream to get it to stick a little better.
The dough is then rolled out into a rectangle, cut with a pizza cutter (or a regular knife would work as well), and thrown in the oven until done.
The recipe suggests serving with jam, but these are just as good plain with some tea!
These were almost perfect, but I found them just a tad too sweet and thought they needed a little more salt than the recipe called for.
These are a pretty easy recipe, but you might need to add more cream or flour to get the dough the right consistency, which is not mentioned in the recipe.
You’ll need flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, butter, heavy cream, and an egg. Pretty common ingredients!
