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!
