What's left in the fridge is going into some eggs as a scramble. But what to have with it? Buttermilk Scones. Thick yet flaky, they aren't too sweet and go well with a number of dishes or just a nice cup of coffee.
3 cups flour
1/3 cup plus 1 Tablespoon sugar
1 tsp salt
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 and 1/2 half sticks unsalted butter
1 cup buttermilk (or 1 cup milk, minus one tablespoon which is replaced by 1 Tbsp vinegar and left to sit 10 minutes)
Preheat oven to 400 F. Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl and cut in the cutter using a pastry cutter, a knife and fork or your fingers until it it is a course meal. Add buttermilk and still just until combined.
