CLASSIC CREAM SCONES
You're best off describing scones to a German by saying that they are like a cross between a Kuchen (cake), a Plaetzchen (cookie), and a Broetchen (roll), but are very unique and not really like anything else found in Germany. My German husband *loves* this recipe: Classic Cream Scones (from Simply Scones, by Leslie Weiner and Barbara Albright)

Yield 14 scones
Number Of Ingredients 10
- Preheat oven to 425F.
- Lightly butter a baking sheet. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut the butter into 1/2-inch cubes and distribute them over the flour mixture. With a pastry blender or two knives used scissors fashion, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
- In a small bowl, stir together the cream, egg, and vanilla.
- Add the cream mixture to the flour mixture and stir until combines.
- Stir in the currents/raisins (optional). With lightly floured hands, pat the dough into a 1/2-inch thickness on a lightly floured cutting board.
- Using a floured 2 1/2-inch-diameter round biscuit cutter or a glass, cut out rounds from the dough and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Gather the scraps together and repeat until all the dough is used.
- Lightly brush the tops of the scones with the egg mixture, if desired.
- Bake for 13-15 minutes, or until lightly browned.
- Remove the baking sheet to a wire rack and cool for 5 minutes.
- Using a spatula, transfer the scones to the wire rack to cool.
- Serve warm or cool completely and store in an airtight container.
- Makes about 14 scones.
- Variation: Add about 1 1/2 teaspoons of grated lemon peel to the dry ingredients.

- Heat the oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Tip the self-raising flour into a large bowl with ¼ tsp salt and the baking powder, then mix.
- Add the butter, then rub in with your fingers until the mix looks like fine crumbs. Stir in the caster sugar.
- Put the milk into a jug and heat in the microwave for about 30 secs until warm, but not hot. Add the vanilla extract and a squeeze of lemon juice, then set aside for a moment.
- Put a baking tray in the oven. Make a well in the dry mix, then add the liquid and combine it quickly with a cutlery knife - it will seem pretty wet at first.
- Scatter some flour onto the work surface and tip the dough out. Dredge the dough and your hands with a little more flour, then fold the dough over 2-3 times until it's a little smoother. Pat into a round about 4cm deep. Take a 5cm cutter (smooth-edged cutters tend to cut more cleanly, giving a better rise) and dip it into some flour. Plunge into the dough, then repeat until you have four scones. You may need to press what's left of the dough back into a round to cut out another four.
- Brush the tops with a beaten egg, then carefully arrange on the hot baking tray. Bake for 10 mins until risen and golden on the top. Eat just warm or cold on the day of baking, generously topped with jam and clotted cream. If freezing, freeze once cool. Defrost, then put in a low oven (about 160C/140C fan/gas 3) for a few minutes to refresh.

- Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- In a medium bowl, mix flour, 1/3 cup sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Grate butter into flour mixture on the large holes of a box grater; use your fingers to work in butter (mixture should resemble coarse meal), then stir in raisins.
- In a small bowl, whisk sour cream and egg until smooth.
- Using a fork, stir sour cream mixture into flour mixture until large dough clumps form. Use your hands to press the dough against the bowl into a ball. (The dough will be sticky in places, and there may not seem to be enough liquid at first, but as you press, the dough will come together.)
- Place on a lightly floured surface and pat into a 7- to 8-inch circle about 3/4-inch thick. Sprinkle with remaining 1 tsp. of sugar. Use a sharp knife to cut into 8 triangles; place on a cookie sheet (preferably lined with parchment paper), about 1 inch apart. Bake until golden, about 15 to 17 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes and serve warm or at room temperature.

- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
- Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl. Using a pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in butter until largest pieces are the size of small peas.
- Using a fork, whisk together the cream and eggs in a large glass measuring cup. Make a well in the center of flour mixture, and pour in cream mixture. Stir lightly with fork just until the dough comes together (do not overmix).
- Turn out dough onto a lightly floured work surface. With floured hands, gently pat dough into a 4 1/2-by-8 1/2-inch rectangle, about 3/4-inch thick. Using a floured 2-inch round cutter, cut out 8 to 10 rounds, and transfer them to lined baking sheet. Brush tops with cream, and sprinkle with sugar. Bake scones until golden brown, 16 to 20 minutes. Transfer scones to wire racks, and let cool. Serve warm or at room temperature, topped with strawberry preserves and whipped cream.
RICH CREAM SCONES
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Sift together flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and 3/4 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or rub in with your fingers. (The largest pieces should be the size of small peas.) With your fingertips, flatten butter pieces into small disks. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until butter is very firm, about 20 minutes.
- Combine cream and vanilla in a small bowl, and stir into flour mixture with a wooden spoon until almost absorbed and dough just comes together. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured work surface; roll out into an 8-by-10-inch rectangle. With a short side facing you, fold rectangle into thirds, as you would a letter. Rotate dough a quarter turn clockwise. Repeat rolling out, folding, and rotating dough 2 more times. With floured hands, pat out dough to a 1 1/4-inch thickness, and cut out as many rounds as possible with a floured 2 1/4-inch round biscuit cutter. Gather scraps, reroll once, and cut out more rounds (you should have a total of 12).
- Place scones 2 inches apart on parchment-lined baking sheets. Brush tops with cream, and sprinkle with sugar. Bake until golden brown, 18 to 20 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Let cool on sheets. Serve warm or at room temperature.

CLASSIC CREAM SCONES
Being a vintage cookbook collector is a bit like any hobby--it starts off reasonable, maybe one book here or there, on a topic of interest. But a few years in, it's obvious that your hobby is a bit more of an obsession. I have run out of shelf space, my husband has ineffectively put a moratorium on any new old books, and I have an arcane organizational system, based on regional cuisine. I'm officially hooked. The books by Louis P. De Gouy make up a substantial percentage of shelf space, and with good reason--they're brilliant. Written with the passion and love of a true nerd, it's obvious that De Gouy enjoys eating as much as cooking. One recipe has always eluded me: perfect scones. I grew up eating Australian-style scones (my mom and nana are both Aussies), which are quite different from their American cousins. American scones (rhymes with "owns") are basically muffin tops. Sweet with a nice crumbly texture. Australian scones (rhymes with "hans") are barely sweet (that's what the jam is for!) with a delicate, ephemeral texture. I had a very specific flavor and texture in mind, but could never quite get it right. One day I was flipping through my vintage cookbook collection and came across De Gouy's scone section in "The Bread Tray." My eyes immediately went to "Cream Scones II." Rich and with only a few teaspoons of sugar, these seemed like just the thing. I made some adjustments to lighten the texture, and here we have a perfect Aussie scone. Make sure to have several jars of your favorite jam ready--an entire plate will easily disappear. They're remarkable easy to freeze too (I freeze the cut-out dough for on demand scones)!

- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
- Sift together the flour, sugar, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt in a large bowl. Cut the butter into the dry mixture using a pastry cutter (or very quickly with your fingertips). Add the cream and the eggs, stirring together into a dough.
- Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat into an 8- to 9-inch-wide, 1/2-inch-thick circle. Cut into 8 triangles. Spread the triangles across the tray. Bake until toasted on the bottom and lightly golden on top, 15 to 20 minutes.
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!

Top Asked Questions
What is the Best Scone recipe to make?This basic scone recipe is perfect as is, but the upgrades and flavor add-ins are nothing to scoff at, either. Preheat oven to 375°. Whisk granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and 3 cups flour in a large bowl to combine. Add butter and toss to coat.
Do you have to work butter into the flour when making scones?No need to work the butter into the flour mixture before adding the liquid ingredients. For these cream scones, all you need to do is fold the egg and cream mixture straight into the flour. The dough for these Basic Cream Scones will not be as wet as last month buttermilk scones, so use extra flour sparingly.
Do you put eggs in cream scones?The crumbly scone dough is required to create the flakiness, and eggs are a binding agent that will reduce that flakiness. While there’s nothing wrong with adding eggs, for a classic, buttery, extra flaky scream scone, you shouldn’t add eggs. The other characteristic feature of classic cream scones (or any kind of scone) is the height.
How long do you cook scones in the freezer?Brush the tops of the scones with the remaining 1/4 cup of heavy cream. *Place the baking sheet in the freezer for 15 minutes. Bake the scones for 15 minutes, they will start to get golden brown on the edges.
