Savory Scones

Prep 15 m
Bake 20 m
Stand 10 m



  1. 1 of 5 Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. 2 of 5 Combine flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda in food processor. Pulse once or twice to combine. Add butter. Pulse 10 to 12 times or until mixture resembles fresh bread crumbs. (The butter can also be cut into flour using a pastry blender or your fingertips.)
  3. 3 of 5 Transfer mixture to large bowl. Add 1 cup buttermilk, stirring quickly to combine. If mixture is too dry, add more buttermilk, 1 tablespoon at a time, until dough holds together and is slightly stringy and crumbly. Turn out onto lightly floured surface. Knead 6 to 7 times (do not knead more than that or scones will become tough).
  4. 4 of 5 Divide dough in half. With floured hands, press each half into 9 x 4-inch rectangle. With a short side facing you, fold into thirds like a business letter. Press each portion into a 6- to 7- inch circle; place on ungreased baking sheet. Cut each circle into 6 equal wedges; pull wedges slightly apart. Brush tops with remaining buttermilk. Let stand 10 minutes.
  5. 5 of 5 Bake in 400 degrees oven for 20 minutes, or until tops are lightly browned. Remove and serve warm. Makes 12 scones.
