Here we  go!

1.)In the mixer combine the All-Purpose, Cake Flour, Baking Powder, Baking Soda, and Salt mix until combined. Add the cold unsalted cubed butter about 1/2″ pieces. If you only have salted butter just take out about half the salt in the recipe.

2.)Mix the butter and flour until the butter is pea sized. Do not over mix! Scones are supposed to be flaky and tender. 

3.)Add the sour creme and the heavy cream and mix until just combined.

5.)Turn off the mixer once the dough comes together and you may have to finish mixing the dough by hand. I rather use a little hand muscle to ensure I have tender flaky scones. Then roll out to about 1/2″ thick with a rolling pin.

6.)Let the rolled out dough rest in the cooler for at least an hour then cut rectangles or cut with a cookie cutter.If you are planning to put them in the freezer wrap the scones in freezer paper or plastic wrap at this step.

7.)Brush the finished scones with heavy cream. This step makes your scones nice and shiny,it is not necessary.
