Another good mix to give. This one requires only two ingredients. I will divide out the directions like I did on on the shortbread cookies.

Dry Ingredients:
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder

How to make Scones:

11 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1 cup cold heavy cream

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees

2. Using a pastry blender or your hands, blend butter into dry ingredients until mixture is consistence of course meal.

3. Add cream; stir until blended.

4. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead lightly until a smooth dough is formed. Pat until about 1 inch thick. Cut dough with a biscuit cutter into circles. Repeat until all dough is used.

5. Arrange 1 inch apart on a baking sheet. Bake until lightly browned, 15 to 20 minutes.

6. Cool and serve with the mix berry preserves on the side.
