Ingredients

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp cream of tarter
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk milk, soy or almond milk will all work
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1/4 cup dried fruit I used a blend of blueberries, strawberries and cherries
  • Colored Sanding sugar optional

Optional Glaze

  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla paste or extract.
  • 1 tbsp milk or cream

Instructions

  • Sift together flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon
  • In a separate bowl, combine melted butter, sugar and buttermilk.
  • Combine wet ingredients to dry ingredients with a wooden spoon. Add dried fruit if you are using it. Fold dough over about for times.
  • Split dough in half. Dust a solid surface with flour. Pat each half into a 6 inch round that is approximately 1/2 inch thick, and no thicker. Dust each side of the dough with flour and brush off excess. Cut each round into 4 wedges.
  • Heat a griddle or pan (I used cast Iron). Cook over low heat for 3 minutes without moving. Increase heat to medium-low and cook an additional 5 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Flip wedges and cook an additional 7 to 8 minutes until the wedges are golden brown, being careful not to let them burn.
  • Allow the scones cool 3 or 4 minutes on a cooling rack. Glaze if desired and sprinkle with sanding sugar for Mardi Gras!
