Step 1: Combine dry ingredients
2 cups flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/.2 teaspoon salt
~1/3 cup dried fruit (blueberries, cranberries, cherries, raisins, currants, candied ginger, etc)
~1 Tablespoon citrus zest (lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, etc)
Mix all the dry ingredients together, including the fruit and zest. You should see plenty of colorful zest sprinkled throughout the mix, and a generous amount of fruit. (Think roughly the ratio of chocolate chips in cookies.)
Step 2: Add heavy cream
Add 1 1/4 cups heavy cream to your dry ingredients, and stir everything together with a fork. This will make a rather moist biscuit-like dough. You don't need to make it completely homogeneous; just get all the pockets of dry ingredients worked in.
I find it best to add the cream a bit at a time, stirring between.
The pictures below show a triple batch. Yes, I'm pouring heavy cream directly from the container- once you've made these a few times you'll know when you reach the proper liquid ratio.
Step 3: Knead and press out
Flip the dough out onto an ungreased cookie sheet and press it into a circle or square about 1/2-3/4 inch thick. This isn't rocket science- just make a nice evenly thick pancake. It will be crumbly and a bit uneven, but that's the joy of scones.
In case you haven't noticed, the dough is really good. Take this opportunity to try some if you haven't already. Hey, that's enough- you've got to have some left to cook too!
