Step 1:

Start by preheating your oven to 400F and lining a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step 2:

Add flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Whisk until well combined. Add diced cold butter. Using a pastry cutter, cut the butter into the flour mixture until pea-sized butter crumbs form. Gently stir in flavor add-ins if adding. Once done, refrigerate it.

Step 3:

Get a small bowl, and add cream, eggs, and vanilla. Beat everything with a fork until well blended. Remove the flour mixture from the refrigerator and pour the cream mixture. Fold with a spatula just until moistened – make sure not to over-mix it. If it’s dry, you can add a tablespoon of cream. If it’s too moist, sprinkle it with flour.

Step 4:

Place the dough onto a clean work surface and make it into a ball just so it comes together, then flatten it into a 1-inch thick and 7-inch wide disk. Divide it into 8 equal wedges – cut straight down without using a sawing motion.

Step 5:

Arrange them 1 inch apart on a lined baking sheet. Brush the tops with cream, then sprinkle coarse sugar. Place in the refrigerator for 15 minutes before baking.

Step 6:

Bake the scones for 18-22 minutes or until golden on top and the center is baked through. Remove it from the oven and let it cool completely.

Step 7:

While waiting for it to cool, make the glaze. In a small bowl, add powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon of milk, and vanilla. Mix until well blended. It should have a drizzling consistency. If it’s too thick, add more powdered sugar, if it’s too thin, add more milk. Drizzle it over the cooled scones. Enjoy!
