Ingredients

  • 4 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 pound (2 sticks) unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces, plus more for pan
  • 1 to 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup light cream

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt into a large bowl. Cut in butter using a pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Mixing lightly with your fingers, add heavy cream just until dough holds together. Wrap in plastic and chill about 1/2 hour before rolling out.

  2. Step 2

    Butter a large baking sheet; set aside. Roll dough into a circle, 1/2 inch thick for small scones and 3/4 inch thick for larger ones. Using a biscuit or cookie cutter, cut dough into various shapes. Transfer scones to prepared baking sheet.

  3. Step 3

    Combine egg and light cream in a small bowl; brush tops of scones with mixture. Bake until golden brown and puffed, 13 to 15 minutes. Serve warm.
