From the archives: scones

... because coffee and tasty treats and talking with people you love make life richer.

Cream Scones

2 cups of flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter
1 cup of whipping cream
Optional...coarse sugar on top of wedges before baking

Don't over work dough or it gets tough.

You can make two small circles and cut into wedges or one large one to cut into wedges. Up to you how you make/cut them. If you make two smaller balls, you can make two different kinds.

You can cut the wedge open enough to put a couple fresh raspberries inside (frozen will be too wet, only do fresh. Strawberries would be too wet too.). Another good alternative is to fold in some mini chocolate chips or fresh blueberries in dough.                                                                                                                                                                                       
Bake at 425 for about 12 minutes.
