    From Southern Living: These luscious scones received a 3 -- our Test Kitchens' top rating.

    List of Ingredients

    2 cups all-purpose flour
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1/4 cup sugar
    1/3 cup butter or margarine, cubed
    1/2 cup whipping cream
    1 large egg
    1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    1 egg white
    1 teaspoon water
    Sugar, for sprinkling


    Combine first 4 ingredients. Cut in butter with a pastry blender until mixture is crumbly.

    Whisk together cream, egg, and vanilla; add to flour mixture, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened.

    Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Pat dough to 1/2-inch thickness; cut with a 2 1/2-inch round cutter, and place on baking sheets.

    Whisk together egg white and 1 teaspoon water; brush mixture over tops of scones. Sprinkle scones with additional sugar.

    Bake at 425 degrees for 13 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned. This recipe makes 1 dozen scones
