About The Recipe

We’re back with a new scone recipe and I could be more excited to share this with all of you! This scone is extra special…and not just because it’s seriously delicious, but because of how it’s made. This scone is only seven ingredients

Yep, you read that right. Only seven pantry staple ingredients.

Oh, and not only are these scones super simple with the amount of ingredients, but they also require no butter! They’re a cream based scone, which my mom and I have been wanting to do for a while.

It’s something we’ve always wanted to experiment with, but haven’t gotten around to…until now!

And let me tell you, these scones are not only the softest, flakiest, most melt-in-your-mouth delicious scones, but they’re even more buttery than a butter-based scone! It’s seriously so SO delicious.

Every bite is loaded with nutty, perfectly sweet, loaded with delicious maple flavor, and truly the perfect way to kick off your Fall mornings!

Cream Scones vs Butter Scones

It might not seem like it would change a lot, but it really does! Cream based scones are richer in flavor and, in my own opinion, have more of a melt-in-your-mouth feel when eating. Butter scones, while still delicious, are a bit more dense and a little bit more difficult to work with.

I still love a good butter based scone, but these are seriously my new favorite way to bake scones!

How To Store

Once these scones have cooled, you can place them in a freezer safe bag, and freeze for up to 2 months!
