Mom’s Pat-a-Cake Scones


  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 cups whipping cream
  • 2 tsp. lemon peel (optional)
  • a bit of whipping cream to brush on the top


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl
  • Coat hands with flour and knead just as long as it takes to make a ball*
  • Turn out onto a floured surface and roll into a 7 1/2 inch circle using a floured rolling pin
  • Using a pizza cutter, cut into 6-8 wedges
  • Lightly brush the top of each wedge with whipping cream and transfer to ungreased baking sheet.
  • Bake for 18 minutes

*Do not overwork this dough – the more you knead it, the tougher the scone will be!
