2 cups flour
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
¼ cup butter or margarine
½ cup heavy cream
1 egg

Preheat oven to 425° F
Grease a cookie sheet
Combine dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Use a fork or a pastry blender to work butter or margarine into dry ingredients until the butter is the size of small peas.
Add remaining ingredients and mix just until the dry ingredients are moist.
Turn dough onto a lightly-floured surface and gather into a ball. Pat into a circle ¾-inch thick. Cut into 8 wedges. Place on greased cookie sheet. Sprinkle each wedge with just a pinch of sugar.
Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until scones are light golden brown.

Serve warm with butter or jam.
