Kiwi Girls Cook - Easy Cream Scones
  • 3 cups pancake mix
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter, chilled, cut into pieces
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (optional)
  • Vanilla Sugar* (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. In a medium bowl stir together pancake mix, flour and sugar. Cut in butter with fork or pastry blender until mixture is crumbly. Add cream, water and egg; stir until dough forms. Fold in chocolate chips.
  2. Transfer dough to floured surface and knead 8-10 times. Divide dough in half. With lightly floured hands, form each piece into an 8-inch circle. Cut each circle into 8 wedges. Place on lightly greased baking sheet. Sprinkle with vanilla sugar if desired. Bake 15-17 minutes or until lightly browned.
  3. *For vanilla sugar, in a small bowl add ¼ cup of sugar and 1 vanilla bean pod. Let sit for at least 1 hour or overnight. You do not need the vanilla beans inside the pod. After the sugar has been infused you can keep the pod for later use.
  4. ** For savory variations such as cheddar and onion, reduce amount of sugar to ¼ cup.
