  • Oven


  • 2+1/4 cup All purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons Granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Baking powder
  • 3/4 stick Cold butter in cubes
  • 1/3 cup Milk
  • 1 tablespoon Milk
  • 1/4 cup Cream Over 35% fat
  • 1 unit Egg
  • 3/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 cup Raisins Optional


  • Preheat the oven 345º Fahrenheit (180º Celsius) 
  • Mix the butter, very cold cut in cubes, with the flour and the salt (do not add salt if you use salted butter). We will use a fork or potato press to mix it until you have a gritty, sandy texture.
  • Add the baking powder, the egg slightly bitten and the cream.
  • Remove the ingredients with the help of a spatula or wooden spoon, do not overmix.
  • Dust your working surface with flour and extend the dough with the help of a rolling pin.
  • When you have a dough with at least 1” tickness dough use a  scone cutter, a cookie cutter, or a glass if you don’t have and cut your scones.
  • Brush the top of the scones with the beaten egg left.
  • Bake 345º Fahrenheit until the surface turned brown, for around 20-25 minutes.
  • Serve with butter, jam or cream cheese and enjoy!
