Simple Sweet Baked Scones

by Nichole Carver, Your Magical Marketing Millennial


  • 2 1/2 C. Flour (any kind)
  • 1 TBSP Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 8 TBSP. Cold, Unsalted Butter, cut up (sub alternative butter if desired, but it needs to be cold!)
  • 1/4 C. Granulated Sugar (can use less or sub for a cleaner alternative)
  • 2/3 C. Milk (sub almond milk)
  • Herbs (have fun and experiment here!) 

Heat oven to 425 degrees. 

Put flour, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl; stir, mixing well. Add butter and cut in with a pastry blender (I use my Bosch pastry attachment) or rub in with your fingers, until the mixture looks like fine crumbs.

Add sugar and herbs, if using; toss to mix.

Add milk and stir with a wooden spoon until dough forms (dough may be a bit crumbly).

Place dough on floured counter and knead gently until the dough comes together in a ball. Pat or roll into a circle about 1 1/2 inches thick. Cut circle into 6 or 8 wedges.

Place wedges on a greased cookie sheet - slightly apart for crisp sides (my favorite) or touching for soft.

Bake about 12 minutes, or until medium brown on top.
