My understanding is that scant means a little less, so if it says a scant cup then you use a little less than a cup.

Like GB said, "scant" is a measurement not a type of cream.

Heavy cream is the type with the highest fat content.

Nick, was there a measurement before the "scant heavy cream"? If so, I would go with a little less than the indicated measurement of heavy cream.

Scant to me means not much, but would need to know the context to come up with an answer.
