Preparation <p>Preheat oven to 400°.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>In a food processor, pulse flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt together. Add the cubed butter until a coarse meal forms. Pulse in the sour cream and egg yolk until just combined. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Turn the sticky dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until the dough comes together into a ball. Gently pat the dough down into a 3/4-inch thick square shape. With a large knife cut the dough square into 4 smaller, equal squares. Then cut each smaller square diagonally, with an X, making 4 smaller triangles.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Transfer the 16 triangles onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Brush the tops of each scone with heavy cream and sprinkle it with some coarse sugar. This will create a shiny and crunchy top for the scones. Bake in preheated oven for 12 to 14 minutes until the bottoms of the scones are light brown. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Remove from oven, cool slightly on the sheet pan and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.</p>
