Ingredients
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp SACO Cultured Buttermilk Blend

  • 6 Tbsp granulated sugar

  1. In medium mixing bowl stir together flour, baking powder and Buttermilk Blend.

  3. Add sugar and beat 3 to 5 minutes until pale and fluffy.
  4. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition.
  5. Scrape sides of bowl; reduce speed to low.

  7. Scrape sides.
  8. Add water and mix just until blended.
  9. Remove bowl from machine.
  10. Scoop ⅓ cup cupfuls of dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet, placing mounds about 2 inches apart. (An ice cream scoop speeds scooping.)
  11. Loosely cover dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate about 45 minutes (or freeze and, when hard, remove to a plastic bag and freeze for up to 6 weeks).
  12. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  13. Uncover scones and bake 15 minutes.
  14. Reduce heat to 325°F and bake an additional 13 minutes, or until pale golden brown.
  15. Cool, uncovered, on a wire rack.Variations: Once dough is mixed, you can fold in things such as SACO Chocolate CHUNKS, flavored chips, nuts, raisins, dried cranberries, coconut, dried fruit, or whatever your taste buds desire! Note:
  16. If you do not have a large electric mixer, simply use a sturdy bowl and a hand electric mixer to make dough.
