  4. Cut butter into flour mixture using a pastry cutter or fork until it resembles a coarse meal. Stir in ⅔ cup of the pecans. 

  5. Pour cream mixture into flour mixture and toss with a rubber spatula until evenly moistened and it starts to come together in large clumps, then gently knead mixture in bowl by hand several times until it comes together. 

  6. Pour into a lightly floured surface and gently pat and shape into a 8½-inch round. Cut into 8 equal wedges.

  7. Transfer to a prepared baking sheet and brush tops with 1 tablespoon heavy cream. 

  8. Bake in preheated oven for about 13 to 15 minutes until golden. 

  9. Cool on a wire rack slightly then spoon and spread glaze over scones and sprinkle with remaining pecans. Allow glaze to set at room temperature, and store in an airtight container once cool.
