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.
