Total Time 35 mins


  • Mixing Bowl
  • Baking Sheet
  • Rolling Pin
  • Cookie Cutter
  • Pastry Brush


  • 2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 Tbsp Baking Powder
  • ¾ Tsp Kosher Salt
  • 4 Tbsp Unsalted Butter Melted
  • Cups Heavy Cream
  • 3 Tbsp Granulated Sugar


  • Preheat oven to 425°F
  • Mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
  • Add 2 Tbsp of melted butter and all of the heavy cream to the dry ingredients, and stir until a dough forms.
  • Turn out the dough onto a floured surface and knead until it forms a ball.
  • Using a rolling pin, roll the dough out into a square about ¾ inch thick.
  • Cut circles of dough out with a cookie cutter (round works best).
  • Gather the remaining scraps and roll them back up, roll it out, and cut more. You should end up with about 8 scones.
  • Brush the tops of each scone with melted butter.
  • Bake until browned and risen, about 15 minutes.
  • Let rest for 5 minutes, then serve. Since they'll be bland on their own, top with something like my berry compote!
