Base for any variety

3 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup white sugar
5 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter
1 egg, beaten into milk to add to 1 cup of liquid
Preheat oven to 380°F (190°C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment.
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Melt butter and mix into dry ingredients. Here you can add any extra flavors you like: I made 3 batches – one with raisins and nutmeg, one with cranberries and then topped with lemon icing, and a third with parmesan in stead of sugar and grated cheddar with some cayenne and parsley.
Break the egg in a measuring cup and then top up with milk until it measures 1 cup in total, and stir into flour mixture.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead briefly. Roll dough out into 2 1/2 inch thick rounds. Cut each into 8 wedges, and place on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown.
