Tea time scones

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups All purpose flour
2 teaspoons Baking powder
½ teaspoon Salt
4 tablespoons Chilled unsalted butter
2 \N Eggs
⅓ cup Heavy cream
2 tablespoons Orange or lemon zest

Directions: Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl. Using a pastry blender, work in the unsalted butter until it resembles coarse crumbs. You can use two butter knives and cut back and forth in the mixture, if you do not have a pastry blender. Mix in the eggs, one at a time. Stir in the heavy cream and zest. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured cutting board and knead until smooth. Roll out the dough to ¾" thickness. Using a round cookie cutter, cut out the scones and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 425 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Yields 10 scones.
