This is an awesome and easy basic scone recipe for anyone to make.
This is a very versatile scone and you can make it as is here, or feel free to play around and modify it to make plain milk or even use buttermilk, they will all be fantastic.
Whenever you need to cut in butter, make sure the butter is cold, and then use a cheese grater to add it to the flour mix. It is so much easier, and you don’t have to work the dough so much to incorporate it.
