Butter Scones

  If you are bakery chef and think I have broken all rules for scones in the following recipe you are probably right.  There are many things that go through trials in my kitchen that never see the light of blog.  Nevertheless,  today in spite of the scones recipe being trial it came out pretty well and taste rather nice.  As such, I decided I can brave to show them to you.  I picked up a recipe from 'all recipes' but I didn't have all the ingredients they talked about so I did my own thing.  Please try them. I know pictures are probably not the best to show off taste but I am sure you will believe me when I say, this one is a winner. 
Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup sugar confectioners sugar
1 Tbspn granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
10 tablespoons unsalted butter, frozen
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1 large egg

Method:

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl.
3. Grate butter into flour mixture and using your fingers make a coarse meal
4. In another bowl whisk sour cream and egg until smooth. (I whisked with a fork)
5. With the same fork mix in sour cream and egg mixture into flour
6. Mix until large dough clumps form.
7. The dough was quite wet and I added another tablespoon of flour and mixed in
8. spooned the dough onto the cookie sheet and bake for about 15-20 minutes
