- 3 1/3 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 4 1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar
- 50 grams butter (cold and cut into cubes)
- 2 tablespoons vegetable shortening
- 1 1/3 cups milk
- 1 egg (beaten with a pinch of salt.)
- Preheat the oven to 220C.
- Sift the flour, salt, baking soda, and cream of tartar into a bowl.
- Add the butter and vegetable shortening into the bowl, then begin mashing the butter and shortening with a fork.
- Add 1 cup of milk and begin mixing everything with a spoon until the dough begins to form. If the mixture is too dry you may go ahead and add the 1/3 cup of milk that’s left.
- If you like you may also add lemon zest, raisins, or blueberries once the dough is ready.
- Cover a table or counter top with flour and then place the dough on top. Begin mixing everything together with a rasp until the dough is firm.
- Spread the dough out into a circle (by hand), making sure that the circle is approximately 2 centimeters thick.
- Begin cutting out small circles with a cookie cutter and place them on a large tray that has been covered with cooking spray.
- Once all of the scones are placed on the tray, glaze them with the beaten egg mixture.
- Place the tray in the oven for 10–15 minutes.
- Once the scones are baked, let them cool off for a few moments and serve them warm.
