Dill Soda Scones

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Mandy

A great accompaniment to soup or served on its own spread with cream cheese and smoked deli meats. Shredded Parmesan is also a nice addition to this but it will make the dough a little harder to work with. Found in an old book of mine called "A handful of Herbs"

Mmm. The flavor of these reminds me of a really good cracker. The texture is soooooo tender and moist, with a light crisp crust. Thanks for posting! If you're having trouble with the conversions, this is what I used: 4 cups all-purpose flour 3 1/3 tablespoons butter (3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon) 1 1/4 cup buttermilk

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 220.C.
  2. Sift flour with salt & bi-carb soda into a bowl.
  3. Rub in butter with fingertips until mixture resembles breadcrumbs and then quickly mix in combined buttermilk & sill to form a soft dough.
  4. Turn onto a floured board, knead lightly, then roll out to about 2cm thickness.
  5. Stamp out 5cm circles or cut into triangles.
  6. Bake on a lightly floured baking sheet for 12-15 mins, until well risen & golden brown.
