  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled and cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream [or 1/4 heavy cream, 1/4 cup sour cream]
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • heavy cream for brushing
  • 1-2 tablespoons sugar for sprinkling


Position a rack at the center of the oven and preheat oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Mix flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt together in a large bowl [or food processor]. Cut butter into the flour mixture using a pastry cutter, until butter is pea-sized [or pulse in the food processor]. Whisk together the heavy cream, eggs and vanilla. Pour over the flour mixture and mix until combined [you might have to use your hands and ‘knead’ the last bit of crumbs into the wet mixture]. Turn the mixture out onto the parchment lined baking sheet, and form into an 8-inch circle that is 1 inch thick. Cut circle into 8 even pieces, and brush tops with a little heavy cream. Sprinkle the tops with sugar. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the bottom of the scones are golden brown.When scones have cooled a bit, recut with a knife and serve with the grapefruit curd.
