Cream Scones, Slimmed Down
Scones fall into one of two traditions: The English version is very dry and crumbly, a platform on which to slather jam and clotted cream (a thicker take on the whipped variety). The Americanized scone folds the cream directly into the batter, along with a hefty dose of butter and sugar. Either way, you've got a start to the day that can approach 500 calories. Here we lighten the scone while nodding to both traditions.
