Basic Scone Mix

This recipe is great for blueberry scones, chocolate chip scones, oat scones, or leave it plain and add a little jelly filling.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2 cup flour (I usually use a mix of white and whole wheat)
1 T baking powder
3 T sugar
1/2 t salt
5 T chilled butter cut into small pieces
1  to 1.25 cups buttermilk (I sometimes use 1 cup milk and 2 T lemon juice if I don’t have any buttermilk)

1.5 cups frozen berries (for blueberry scones)

mix the dry ingredient and cut in the butter.  Mix the buttermilk in, add the berries and kneed a few times (don’t over do this – they will get tough).  Shape into a 1/2 thick circle and cut into 8 wedges.  Brush on buttermilk and bake about 20 minutes.  Turn the baking tray after 10 minutes.
