Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 11 tablespoons (1 stick plus 3 tablespoons) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 cup cold heavy cream
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons water

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. To prepare scones, whisk together flour, granulated sugar and baking powder in a large bowl until well combined.
  3. Add butter. Using a pastry blender or your hands, blend butter into dry ingredients until mixture is consistency of coarse meal.
  4. Add cream; stir just until blended.
  5. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead lightly until a smooth dough is formed. Pat into a square about 1-inch thick. Cut dough into 16 triangles (cut into 4 squares first, then cut each square into fourths diagonally). Arrange 1 inch apart on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  6. Bake until lightly browned, 15 to 20 minutes. Cool a few minutes before icing.
  7. To prepare icing, mix powdered sugar and vanilla extract in a small bowl. Add water, a little at a time, to achieve a drizzling consistency.
  8. Dip end of a whisk into icing, then wave over warm scones. Makes 16 scones.
