DIRECTIONS

  • Sift the flours, baking powder and salt.
  • Set them aside.
  • Cream the butter.
  • Beat in the brown sugar and then the egg.
  • Mix the dry ingredients in alternately with the milk to make a soft biscuit-like dough.
  • Pat it out to about 1 inch thick on a floured board, and form it into a neat circle.
  • Cut it into 8 or 12 wedges, and bake them at 350°F on a lightly greased cookie sheet, until golden brown, about 12 to 15 minutes.
  • Less traditional but speedier is to scoop them out with an ice-cream scoop from the mixing bowl onto the cookie sheet.
  • Flatten them slightly, and bake as above.
  • Using this method, you will probably get 8 scones.
