Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

2 cups flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, chilled and cut into pieces
3/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
2 beaten eggs
2/3 cup whipping cream
1 beaten egg yolk
1 tablespoon whipping cream
Sugar

Instructions

In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, the 3 tablespoons sugar, cinnamon, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs (This is a snap with a food processor). Stir in nuts. In a small mixing bowl, combine 2 eggs and the 2/3 cup cream. Add to flour mixture and stir until just moistened. Using a 1/4 cup ice cream scoop, scoop dough and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Don't flatten. Combine the egg yolk and 1 tablespoon whipping cream. Brush over the top of the scones. Sprinkle some additional sugar over the scones. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 15 minutes or until scones are golden. Remove from baking sheet. Cool on wire rack for 5 minutes; serve warm. Makes about 12 scones.
