Whipping Cream Scones! Soft as air scones made with whipping cream and zero butter. The coarse sugar topping gives them a crunchy and sweet finish.
Start your day right- have a scone.
Simple Ingredeints Needed:
- Flour + Salt+ Baking powder
- Whipping cream
Make your scones: First, mix together your dry ingredients. You can do this with a whisk or a wooden spoon. Then, add in vanilla.
Gradually, add the whipping cream. Mix just until a dough forms. You don’t want to the dough too sticky, that’s why we’re adding the cream in gradually. 👍 If the dough comes together before you add in all of the cream, that’s OK.
Once the dough is formed, divide it in half. On a well floured surface, shape each piece of dough into a circle. They should be about 5 inches in size.
Place the circles on a prepared baking sheet, then, brush the tops with just a bit of whipping cream. Then, sprinkle tops with coarse sugar. Cut the circles into wedges. A sharp knife or a pizza cutter will work great for this. Pull the wedges apart, just a bit. They need a little space to make sure they bake evenly..inside and out.
Next, freeze it! Place the baking sheets in the freezer for 15 minutes. This will help the scones rise.
When ready, bake them in a preheated oven.
A few notes:
- If desired, you can use a dairy free whipping cream for these.
- Coarse Sugar: It is often times referred to as sanding sugar, raw sugar or turbinado sugar. See the recipe card for the brand I like.
- Serve these with homemade jam…they go delicious together!
