    pansies's Note:

    The instructions are as I originally found this recipe, for cutting out with a round cutter, but for scones I always pat the dough into a circle and cut it into wedges with a knife. The less the dough is handled the more tender they will be. I am not sure where this came from originally, I found it on the 'net somewhere.
