DIRECTIONS

  • Heat flat cast iron pan on low heat for 10 to 15 minutes or until hot. (To test, sprinkle with a little flour; if it browns in 10 to 15 seconds, the pan is hot enough.).
  • Meanwhile in a large mixing bowl, stir flour, baking powder, salt and sugar; with fingertips, rub in shortening or lard until crumbly.
  • Whisk egg with 1 cup of the milk.
  • Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients; pour in the liquid. With wooden spoon, stir to make soft, but not sticky dough, adding more milk as needed.
  • Turn out onto floured board, knead 3 or 4 times. Pat or roll to no more than 1/4 - 1/2 inch.
  • With a sharp knife, cut into small triangles.
  • Place a few at a time on pan; cook, rotating scones occasionally for 5 to 6 minutes or until bottoms are browned.
  • Serve hot.
