Basic Scones

Flaky and buttery basic scones are great with tea or coffee.  Layer with butter and your favourite jam.  For a sweet treat they’re also amazing with honey.


2 cups all purpose flour

2 tbsp sugar

1 tbsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

4 tbsp well chilled butter

1 beaten egg

1/4 cup milk


reheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Mix dry ingredients and add butter.  Mix until mixture is crumbly.

Incorporate liquid and dry ingredients just until the mixture holds into a ball.  You may have to add a small amount of flour.

Put onto a floured surface and cut dough into 2 pieces.  Form into circles and cut into 6 pieces for each circle.  Bake 15 minutes on a cookie sheet.

May be served with jam, honey or  butter.
