Basic Scone Recipe

This here is a mighty fine recipe for hearty filling scones. Scones in afternoon light

We found it in our go-to cookbook, The Settlement Cookbook (1965edt). Add dried fruits and different sugar toppings to give these scones some extra pizazz.

2 cups flour

4 teaspoons baking powder

2 teaspoons sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

4 tablespoons butter

2 eggs

1/3 cup cream

Sift the dry ingredients. Cut in butter with a fork. Add well-beaten eggs and cream. Toss on floured board, pat or roll in 3/4-inch thickness. Cut or score in diamonds about 2 inches across, brush with egg white, and sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon, OR Pecan Pie Spice (pictured above), or also lovely, Lavender Flower Sugar! Bake in on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet in a hot oven, 425ºF, for 15 minutes. Serve hot and piled high with fresh fruit and vanilla bean whipped cream!
