Griddle Scones

READY IN: 35mins
YIELD: 8 scones




  • In a large bowl combine flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, sugar, and salt.
  • With a pastry blender cut in the butter till mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Add buttermilk and egg to above and mix lightly till mixtures forms a soft dough.
  • Heat griddle with a tad of shortening.
  • Drop dough by heaping tablespoons to make 3 or 4 scones; with the back of a spoon, spread dough into a flattened 3" round (to be repeated when these are done).
  • Cook till golden brown on remaining side and center seems firm when gently pressed.
  • Remove and keep warm till all the scones are baked.
  • Serve warm with butter and jam or lemon curd.
  • ORIGINALLY: An ungreased griddle was used, however, a lightly greased one is suggested unless you have a well-seasoned one.
