Tbs. (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
Sugar in the Raw for sprinkling
Preheat an oven to 350ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In the bowl of a food processor, combine the 2 cups flour, the sugar, baking powder and salt and pulse to combine. Add the butter and pulse until the mixture resembles pea-size crumbs. Transfer to a large bowl, add the butterscotch chips and stir to mix.
In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and cream until blended and add to the flour mixture. Using a fork, stir to form large, moist clumps of dough.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and press together with your hands until the dough comes together. Roll out the dough, flouring as needed, into a 7-inch square about 3/4 inch thick. Cut into 4 equal-size squares, then cut each square diagonally into 4 triangles. Transfer the scones to the prepared baking sheet, spacing them evenly apart. Lightly sprinkle each scone with sugar. Bake until the scones are golden, about 25 minutes.
Transfer the scones to a wire rack and let cool for 10 minutes before serving. Makes 16 mini scones.
