How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt.
  • Cut in cold butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • In a small bowl, beat egg with buttermilk; add to flour mixture folding just until mixture clings together (the key to a tender scone is to avoid over mixing the dough).
  • Turn dough out onto a floured board and with floured hands pat into a 12-inch circle.
  • Spread with the 3 tablespoons of softened butter.
  • Mix brown sugar with cinnamon and sprinkle all over the butter.
  • Roll dough from the outer edge (all the way around) towards the middle (you will end up with a ball of dough).
  • Turn dough over on the floured board and pat into an approx 8-inch circle that is about an inch thick.
  • With a large sharp knife, cut into 6 – 8 wedges.
  • Place in a square baking pan or cookie sheet
  • Brush with milk and sprinkle with lots of cinnamon sugar.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes. Serve warm.
