Step 1

In a food processor, pulse flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together. Add butter until coarse meal forms. Pulse in the sour cream and egg yolk until just combined.

Step 2

Turn the sticky dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until the dough comes together into a ball. gently pat the dough down into a 3/4 inch thick square shape.

Step 3

With a 2 1/2 inch round cookie dough cutter, cut out as many rounds as possible. You can reuse the dough. Starting from a 3/4 inch thick shape.

Step 4

Transfer into a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Brush the tops of each scone with heavy cream and sprinkle it with some sugar in the raw. This will create a shiny and crunchy top for the scones. Bake it in preheated oven for 12 to 14 minutes until the bottoms of the scones are lightly brown.

Enjoy!

  1. I’m a huge fan of the Cottage but I live in Michigan so it’s great to make these at home. They are delicious and even better with some cinnamon-strawberry jam similar to what’s served at the restaurant. Happiness!
