Grandma's Cream Scones

Pin It
So the title says Cream Scones, but these are really biscuits.  Okay, no, they are scones.  But that is only because if you add sugar to a biscuit recipe it makes it a scone instead.


Grandma's Biscuits

3 cups of flour    
1/2 cup of sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup margarine
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup milk

  • Mix together dry ingredients.  Cut in margarine
  • Make a well and add in milk and eggs.  Mix well.
  • Roll or pat out to 1" thickness on a lightly floured surface.  Cut into rounds.
  • Bake 20-25mins at 350 on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Makes 2 dozen or so.


  • Make sure your surface is floured or they will stick to it!
  • Use a wine glass or small jar to cut out biscuits.
  • These might stick a little to the sheet if it's not so non-stick anymore.  Put them on parchment paper or make sure the bottoms are slightly floury still.


  1. Is that the difference between a biscuit & a scone? Never knew! The one that gets smothered with jam is the clear winner in my book - gravy, not so much. They look gooood.

  2. Yup, that is the difference. I actually prefer the sweeter biscuit(scone). Has more taste to me.. but that could just be my sweet tooth talking!

    We eat this kind with whatever. Chili, soup, jam, peanut butter, etc!


I love comments! But being Canadian, I also love politeness!! So let's play nice hmmm?
