Beard On Bread Scones

It is too hot to light the oven. These scones are made on a griddle (or a cast iron frying pan in my case) and are really pleasant tasting. Danny had one for tea with butter and jam. He would have eaten the whole batch, had I permitted it.

You Will Need:

2 cups AP flour
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
Buttermilk or sour cream (I used sour cream)

Combine dry ingredients, then add just enough sour cream to make a soft dough. Heat your griddle to medium, then bake until browned on one side, turning and repeating until done. I gave the sides a bit of baking too, but you really need not bother. The scones can be reheated by splitting and toasting them, or eaten as-is.
