Recipe By: Betty Crocker's Homemade Quick Breads


Scone Preparation:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. To prepare the crumb topping, cut the margarine into the flour, sugar and almonds until crumbly; set aside. For the scones, cut the margarine into the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt with a pastry blender in a large bowl until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir in the almonds. Stir in the egg and just enough half-and-half so that the dough leaves the side of the bowl and forms a ball. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface; gently roll in flour to coat. Knead lightly 10 times. Pat or roll into a 9-inch circle on an non-greased cookie sheet. Sprinkle with the crumb topping; press lightly into the dough. Cut into 8 wedges, but do not separate. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Immediately remove from the cookie sheet; carefully separate the wedges. Serve warm.
