  1. Ingredients:
  2. 1 1/2 cups (about 10 ounces) your favorite King Arthur Scone Mix
  3. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  4. 3/4 cup heavy cream OR 1/2 cup half & half or light cream + 2 tablespoons melted butter
  1. Instructions:
  2. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Lightly grease a baking sheet, or line it with parchment.
  3. Whisk together the mix, salt, and heavy cream or half & half/butter. Add additional cream (or additional mix) to make a sticky dough.
  4. Scoop golf-ball sized pieces of dough onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving about 2" between them. Dip the tops of the dough balls in coarse white sparkling sugar, if desired.
  5. Bake the shortcakes for 12 to 14 minutes, until they're a very light golden brown. Remove them from the oven, and cool on a rack.
  6. To make shortcake, split horizontally into top and bottom pieces. Add sliced, sweetened fruit and whipped cream to the bottom; add the "lid" (top), and top with additional whipped cream and fruit, if desired.
  7. Yield: 8 shortcakes
