One of these days a friend of mine was coming to visit us and I really wanted to make some scones. But then I realized I didn’t have any butter. The solution? Change the recipe and replace the butter for heavy cream.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 5 tbsp sugar
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1½ cups heavy cream
- Mix all dry ingredients and then the heavy cream.
- Dust a work surface with flour and place dough. Pat dough into a 1¼-inch-thick rectangle with floured hands and cut out as many rounds as possible with a biscuit cutter, or even a round glass. Gather scraps, reroll once, and cut out more rounds.
- Place scones in a prepared baking sheet and bake for around 20 minutes or until light golden brown.
It was so easy to make that Isabella, my 8-year-old daughter, made it, following my instructions 😉
The scones turned out great (the texture was different because of the heavy cream), everybody loved it! We definitely have a new hit here at home 🙂
