Vanilla Bean Cream Scones

If you’ve never had cream scones, you’re in for a treat. They have the most amazing texture; they’re super soft (unlike the hard, crumbly scones found in so many coffee shops) with a nice crunch on top from a dusting of granulated sugar before they pop in the oven.  This is a one bowl recipe…
