Jana’s Cream Scones


Jana's Cream Scones

½ cup of butter—melt and set aside

1 cup of buttermilk

1 egg

2 TBSP sugar
(beat together)

3 cups of flour

2tsp baking powder

1tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

Add about 2/3rds of the flour mixture to the liquid and stir well.  Then alternating, add the rest of the flour and the melted butter.  Once combined, knead on a breadboard, adding more flour as necessary.  The dough should be firm and not sticky.  Knead for a few minutes.  Roll into a log about ½ foot long.  Cut into 3 equal parts.  They should be circular.  One at a time turn circle off its  side and pat into a thick circle about 4-5” across.  Cut the circles into quarters arrange on a cookie sheet sprinkled with oats and bake in a preheated oven 400 for 20 to 25 minutes.  Serve with clotted cream and honey and preserves or simply with butter—that’s how I like them.
