Simple Scones!!!

Adapted from: Reader’s Digest ~ Creative Cooking


2 cups flour 0 sifted
½ tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar
3 tbs. sugar
3 tbs. butter
About 5 tbs. each milk and water, mixed
Powdered Sugar for dusting

Preheat Oven 350 degrees:

Sift together the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and sugar into a big bowl. Cut up the butter into pieces and rub it into the four with fingertips. Gradually add the milk and water and mix with a round bladed knife to give a soft but manageable dough.

Knead the dough quickly on a lightly floured surface to remove all cracks. Roll dough into a long log and cut into two inch pieces. Place pieces into cupcake papers and place in a cupcake pan.

Bake about 20-25 minutes until they are well risen and lightly golden brown.

These are a simple and delicious treat!
