these are so so so good. they’re light and flaky and perfect with a cup of coffee. (my kids could eat a whole batch in one sitting!)

Cream Scones

2 c flour
1/3 c sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 c mini chocolate chips, dried currants, chopped raisins, whatever
1 1/4 c heavy cream
Wisk dry ingredients together in a bowl (including the add-in of your choice). Add cream and mix together with a wooden spoon until just mixed. Dump out on a floured surface and press into a flat sphere.* Cut into pieces and place on a ungreased cookie sheet. Brush the tops with cream and sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 425 for 12-15 minutes, until tops are just brown.

*do not over-mix or they will become like rocks when you bake them! its okay when the dough should be crumbly and barely holding together. that’s what makes them so flaky.
