Buttermilk Scones Printer-Friendly Recipe
From: Gourmet Getaways
Prep time: 5 mins
Cook time: 25 mins
2½ cups Self-Rising Flour
2 tablespoons cold butter chopped into cubes
1 Tbs sugar
1¼ cups buttermilk
***You want to keep the dough as cool as possible, use your hands as little as possible and bake when your house is cool***
Preheat the oven to 392 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius) and line a baking sheet with a nonstick mat (or flour it); set aside.
To the bowl of a food processor, add the flour and COLD butter. Pulse together until the mixture comes together (it will be coarse, like sand). Pulse in the sugar until combined. Pour in the buttermilk and pulse until the dough starts forming balls. Do NOT over process.
Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and gently form the dough into a square, about an inch thick. Work quickly, you do not want to warm the dough too much with your hands. Cut the dough out into squares or circles (with a knife or biscuit cutter or glass).
