Sweet Scones

This recipe is from razil's friend, whose name I'm forgetting at the moment, who gave it to me when we were driving from Portland to Houston in March. I don't feel like keeping track of the scrap paper it's on, so...

2 c. flour
2 t baking powder
1 T sugar
1/2 t salt
1/4 c butter
2 eggs, well beaten
1/2 c cream (milk ok)

Preheat oven 425. Mix flour, b pow, sugar and salt in large bowl. Work in butter with fingers until mixture is crumbly. Add eggs and cream and stir until blended. Turn onto lightly floured board and knead for about a minute. Pat into 3/4" mound and cut into wedges. Bake for about 15 minutes, keeping an eye on them.
