Specialty Recipe

Buttermilk Scones

Ingredients
2 cups flour
1/2 sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 Tablespoons butter, chilled
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 large egg
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2/3 cup currants or raisins (optional)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Cut butter into 1/2-inch cubes and put over flour mixture. Blend butter into mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. In a small bowl, stir together buttermilk, egg, and vanilla. Add the two mixtures together and stir to combine; add currants or raisins if desired.

With lightly floured hands, pat the dough into a circle 8 inches in diameter on an ungreased baking sheet. Cut into wedges. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until top is lightly brown. Cool for 5 minutes on cookie sheet, then transfer to wire rack to further cool.

Makes: 8 scones
