You'll love this simple and delicious scone recipe!


Units Scale
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar (plus 1 Tbsp, as desired for sweetness)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 11/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp cream of tarter
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (cold)
  • 2 lg eggs
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup cream (whipping cream or half and half)


  1. Mix all of the dry ingredients together and then either grate the butter in the dry mix or put everything in the food processor, if available. (it should have a dry, crumbly texture)
  2. Mix the cream, egg, and milk. (beat the eggs separately before adding to the milk and save back about 1-2 tbsp to brush the tops of the scones before baking)
  3. Make a well in the dry mix and pour the wet mix in and mix thoroughly.
  4. Roll out the dough on a floured area to about 3/4 of an inch thick or thicker if you like thicker scones. You can use a biscuit cutter, cookie cutter or even a floured glass to cut the scones.
  5. Brush the 1-2 tbsp beaten egg wash on the tops and bake for approx 20-25 min at 375 until slightly golden (or as desired done-ness).
  6. Serve with jam, marmalade, butter and cream, as desired.
