The recipe that I use is one that I found in Organic Living Magazine (now no longer published). I use a local stone ground flour, and organic butter and milk, and top it off with local honey.
Scones ( makes 6 smallish scones)
1 cup flour
1/4 cup or 4 T. organic salted butter
1 T. baking powder
I preheat the oven to 425 or 400 on my convection oven. Put flour in a bowl. Take a stick of butter right out of the refrigerator or freezer and a cheese grater and grate the butter into the flour. (I use this technique for pie crusts now too.) Mix up the butter and flour, then add the baking powder, and stir. I then add milk 1 T. at a time until the dough just holds together. I turn it out onto a floured piece of parchment paper and pat the dough into a big circle about 1 inch thick. Cut the circle into 6 pieces, spread out on the paper. Slide the paper onto a baking sheet and put in the oven and bake until golden brown.
We usually eat these right away. Now that my son is 11 and eating tons, I have to scramble to get two of these. The rest seem to disappear.
I really like to enjoy these warm with a good cup of Tazo Zen tea.
