Friday Buttermilk Scones

I love baking scones but there is an issue.
They disappear fast.

If you don't have buttermilk just use
milk with a tbsp. of white vinegar mixed in.

I like to keep careful watch and brown them
ever so slightly because I love the look and texture of taste.

400 degree oven

Whisk together

4 3/4 cup flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp salt
1/2 cup white sugar

Cut in 1 cup cold butter
until it becomes coarse crumbles

Add 1 1/4 cup buttermilk 
2/3 cup raisins or currants or craisins
or any other combinations of goodies

You can also add 1 tbsp
of a zest you love

Turn dough out on a lightly floured surface
Gently pat out into a 10" (approx) round 
1" thick

With a paring knife
Slice the round into wedges

Place on parchment paper pan
a few inches apart
cover and chill in refrigerator for a few hours
or overnight

Brush tops with heavy cream
sprinkle with sugar

Bake 20-25 until golden
