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.

INGREDIENTS

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

DIRECTIONS

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.
