Serving Size : 24
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 cups Flour
1 tablespoon Baking powder
2 tablespoons Sugar
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/4 cup Vegetable shortening
1/2 cup Heavy cream
Heat the oven to 400 deg. Sift the flour with the baking powder; sugar and salt. Cut in
the vegetable shortening. Use a pastry blender or two knives to cut in the shortening
until it resembles large crumbs. Separate 1 of the eggs, reserving the egg white in a
small dish. Combine the yolk with the other egg and cream, beat well. Add the liquid to
the dry mixture, and stir until just blended. Mix with your hands to form dough. Do not
overwork the dough. Roll the dough on a sheet off wax paper to a thickness off 1/2".
Cut into 2" rounds and place on ungreased cookie sheets. Lightly beat the egg white,
and brush the tops off the scones. Bake in the center of the oven for 9 to 11 minutes,
or until the tops are brown.
Note: The scones are best if made the day they are served. You may add dried fruits
or nuts to the scones
