  • Use a stick of frozen butter and grate along large holes on grater over the dry ingredients. Using either a pastry blender or your hands, mix butter and flour mixture just so it is evenly encorporated.

  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk the heavy cream, sour cream, 2 mashed bananas and vanilla extract.

  • Using a bench blade, pour wet ingredients into the flour mixture until large clumps form. Rotate along side of the bowl until a ball forms. The dough will be sticky at this point, but as you work with it, the dough will come together.
  • Place dough on a lightly floured surface and pat into about a 8 in circle. Cut in half and form about a 4-5 in circle with both balls. Use a sharp, floured knife and cut the dough into small triangles; place on prepared baking sheets, about an 1 in apart. Put in fridge for 30 minutes to help firm up that butter.
  • Once pulled out of the fridge, brush each scone with heavy cream or milk. Put in the oven for 20-25 minutes. Scones will be light golden brown on top and around the edges. Set aside while you are making the bananas foster.

  • Pour in Rum. Put your lighter tipped towards the pan and flame should ignite the rum. It will take about 30 seconds for it to go out on its own; but you can shale the pan gently to hasten this if you need to.
