Our Favorite Scone Recipe

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour 
  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick unsalted butter, chilled in freezer for 30 mins
  • 1/2 cup  heavy cream plus 2 Tbsp for brushing
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1–1.5 cups of chocolate chips, berries, fruit etc....
    1. Whisk flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder together in a large bowl. Grate the frozen butter. Add it to the flour mixture and using two forks, or your fingers until the butter comes together in pea-sized crumbs.
    2. Whisk 1/2 cup heavy cream, the egg, and vanilla extract together in a small bowl. Pour mixture into the flour mixture, add our chocolate chips, berries etc then mix together.
    3. Pour onto a counter with flour and, with floured hands, work dough into a ball gently. Dough will be stick and you can add a little more flour. If too dry, add 1 to 2 more tablespoons heavy cream. Gently mold into an 8-inch disc and with a sharp knife cut into 8 wedges or to whatever size you prefer.
    4. Brush scones with heavy cream and for extra crunch, sprinkle with coarse sugar.
    5. Place scones on baking sheet or plate and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes.
    6. Preheat oven to 400°F (204°C).
    7. After refrigerating, arrange scones 2-3 inches apart on a baking sheet(s).
    8. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown around the edges and lightly browned on top. Larger scones take closer to 25 minutes.
