DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Mix flour (start with 3 cups), baking powder, salt, sugar and brown sugar, until well incorporated.
  • Cut the butter into tiny pieces and mix into the flour mixture (you can also use a food processor for this step). Keep cutting in the butter until you incorporate the butter into the flour and it looks like it's the consistency of cornmeal.
  • Add the milk, sour cream and vanilla extract, and mix to form a dough. If dough is too wet to work with, add a little more flour till you have a moist dough, but it's workable. Add your mix ins and mix till well distributed. If you have a wet mix in like blueberries, you may need to add a little more flour.
  • Cut dough in two (or cut in two before adding the mixins if you want two flavors) and shape into 2 rounds, 1/2 inch thick. Baste the top with a little milk and then sprinkle with sugar. Cut each circle into 8 wedges. Separate slightly to help them cook. Cook for approximately 17 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through in the middle.
