the best scones
are made with
whipping cream and
cream of tartar
the French weigh
all their ingredients
with measuring flour
by the cup
one encounters
which can be adjusted
by feel
all measured flour
should be well sifted
sift together
two cups of flour with
a teaspoon of baking soda
two teaspoons cream of tartar
two tablespoons powdered sugar
cut in a couple tablespoons
of fresh unsalted butter
mix well one egg and
half cup of whipping cream
add to flour butter mix
mixing oh so gently
kneed slightly
bake on greased pan
or a scone griddle
at 450 degrees for
about fifteen minutes
or until brown
have more butter
and orange marmalade
ready to put on
hot split scones
