Scotch Scones (1906)

  • 4 cups of sifted flour
  • 1 cup of buttermilk
  • 1 tbspn of butter
  • 1 tbspn of sugar
  • 1/2 tspn of baking soda
  • 1/2 tspn of salt
Rub the butter into the flour, add the sugar and salt, sitr the soda into the buttermilk, and mix with the flour.

Roll into a thin sheet, cut into triangles, and bake about 35 minutes on a floured tin.  Just before they are done, rub a cloth dipped in milk over the tops and put back into the oven to glaze.

Note - Sour milk may be made from fresh by keeping the milk some hours in a warm place, or more quickly, by adding a little lemon-juice or vinegar to the amount of milk required.
