- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 Tablespoons sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 6 Tablespoons butter or margarine
- 1/2 cup “filler” of dried currents or raisins or cranberries or chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 2 eggs
Method:Preheat over to 425 degree
In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Using a pastry blender, or two knives scissor fashion, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles course crumbs. Stir in your choice of “filler” until well mixed.
In a small bowl, combine the buttermilk and eggs. Add this to the dry ingredients and stir to form a soft dough. With floured hands, knead gently and briefly to combine. Divide dough in half.
On an ungreased cookie sheet, pat each piece of dough into a 6-inch round. Cut each round into six pieces. DO NOT separate. Bake until golden brown, about 12 to 15 minutes. Separate wedges and serve warm.
