Honey Scones for Tea Time or Anytime!

My mom brought her Tea Time magazine with her on our recent family get-together, and in it I found a recipe for honey scones.  They are a little bit like biscuits, but a little crispier, sweeter, and more buttery.  Delicious! They are not lasting long, as we are all gobbling them up quickly! Put a dab of butter or jam on them, mmmmmm......

They are also very quick to make.  Mine probably would be taller, but with three little ones always needing something, these didn't make it into the oven right away.

Here's the recipe:

2 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 cup cold unsalted butter, diced
1/4 cup cold cream cheese, diced
3 tablespoons honey
1 cup whipped cream, plus another spoonful or two to glaze the top of the scones
Sugar to sprinkle the top of scones

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mix dry ingredients; cut in butter and cream cheese, until mixture is in course crumbs.
In a separate bowl, whisk honey and cream together.
Add cream mixture to dry ingredients; stir until it is a moist dough.
Turn onto a lightly floured surface; roll dough to 1/2 inch or 3/4 thickness.
Place scones 2 inches apart on baking sheet; glaze with cream, sprinkle with sugar.
Bake about 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
