The recipe for these plain, but moist, scones – the type that is good for slathering with butter and jam – was sent to me by some lovely guests from Oregon who have stayed with us a number of times over the years. Enjoy!
3 c. flour
1/2 c. sugar
1 T. + 1 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
2 c. heavy cream
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Whisk together dry ingredients, then beat in heavy cream.
3. Turn mixture out onto a floured work surface. Divide in half. Shape each half into a disk 6″ wide. Cut into four wedges. Transfer wedges to baking sheet.
4. Allow scones to sit for 15 minutes, then bake for about 18 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
