Scones are my daughter’s favorite! She always requests them at coffee shops, so we finally decided to try making them at home. Most recipes for scones involve cutting butter into dry ingredients, similar to how you make a pie dough, which can be a bit tedious. I wanted something simpler.
Enter heavy cream. With heavy cream you get the same richness as butter, but a lot less hassle. Instead of working the butter in with your fingers, you simply stir in the cream with a spoon!
And what I really love about this recipe for simple vanilla scones is that you can change it up depending on what other ingredients you have around. Fresh blueberries, lemon zest or chocolate chips are all wonderful options (see instructions below), and I’m sure there are many others! Leave me a comment if you try something good!
These scones are best enjoyed the same day, but you can keep them overnight in a covered container if needed. Warm up the leftovers in the microwave before serving for best results 🙂
