Substitute for Cream in this recipe (scones)

I don't have any cream, what can I substitute for the cream in this recipe?

I have evaporated milk, condensed milk, whole milk.

Alton Brown Scones


Thank you, was hoping to make it this morning.

Is the condensed milk sweetened? I would use the evaporated milk.

You can use the condensed milk in this case, for scones, and probably not notice the difference.

Scones with dried cranberries and/or cherries! Yummmm!!!
I'm not a currant fan, but enjoy!

The sweetened condensed milk has other ingredients in it, so it would alter your recipe more so than your other choices.

Evaporated milk for sure. Condensed milk is NOT the choice for scones.

1 batch in with evap milk, waiting to see how it is before doing the choco chip batch. Isnt 1/3 cup sugar too little? I'm wondering if it will be sweet enough. Its my 1st time making scones.

Thanks for the replies, I can always depend on this forum.

Scones aren't really all that sweet, just a bit sweeter than biscuits. You can sprinkle some sugar on top before baking, too.
