Tallman Hotel Scones

From Tallman Hotel in Upper Lake, California

Freshly baked each morning, our guests love these scones as is or slathered with our local made berry jam.


  • 3 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 Tbs. baking powder
  • 2 Tbs. salt
  • 2 ½ cups heavy cream
  • 1 egg
  • Splash of milk

Directions: Preheat oven to 350°. Blend together first four ingredients. Add heavy cream to dry ingredients. Use hands to get everything fully blended and gather into a ball. Place dough ball on lightly floured counter or cutting board and knead dough 2-3 times. Re-shape dough into a ball about 10” around and 1/4” thick, depending on preference. Cut into 10-12 wedges and place on baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Beat egg with milk and brush mixture lightly over the top of the scones. Lightly sprinkle tops with raw sugar, if desired. Bake scones for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly before removing from pan. For those who like things a little sweeter, sprinkle some raw sugar over the tops of the scones just before baking.
