Turn food processor on high and process for about 30 seconds

Add honey, process for 30 more seconds

Remove butter from the freezer and cut into tablespoons

Add butter to food processor 1 tbsp at a time, pulsing for 10 seconds with every add

Add the heavy cream and vanilla extract, process 30 more seconds or until begins to form a ball

Gather batter into a ball with your hands and place it on a lightly floured surface

Roll out batter into a circle so it is about 1 inch thick and 6 inches in diameter

Cut into 8 triangular scones

Place scones on a prepared baking sheet

Serve or save for later*

Notes

*If you like dry scones, you can store them on the counter top covered in a layer of plastic wrap for up to a week, they will dry out more and more as time passes. If you prefer a moister scone, store them in the refrigerator in an air tight container for up to a week. Or individually wrap them and store them in an air tight container in the freezer, take out and defrost when you are ready to eat.
