2cupsall purpose flour
1tspcream of tarter
3/4cupbuttermilkmilk, soy or almond milk will all work
1/4cupdried fruitI used a blend of blueberries, strawberries and cherries
Colored Sanding sugaroptional
1tspvanilla paste or extract.
1tbspmilk or cream
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!
