Scones are a kind of sweet biscuit. They are very common in the United Kingdom. Here is a pretty good recipe that I made after a lot of trial and error. These are quite easy. You can add a bit more sugar if you want. These taste awesome with grape or blackberry jelly!

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons baking powder

  • 1 tablespoon white sugar

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • cup butter, melted

  • ¾ cup heavy whipping cream

  • ¼ cup milk

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.

  2. Sift together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add the butter, cream, and milk; stir until a spongy dough has formed. Turn the dough out onto a lightly-floured surface. Pat the dough into a rectangle about 3/4 inch thick and 7 inches wide. Cut into 6 triangles. Arrange on the prepared baking sheet.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 10 to 13 minutes.
