Scones feel like a special treat for breakfast! These scones have a slightly crunchy exterior and a delicious, buttery interior.
These scones don't contain any filling, like raisins or other dried fruit, which is how I prefer my scones. I prefer to add jam or butter to my scones.

After mixing the flour and butter, add the remaining dry ingredients and mix well with a whisk. This step makes sure that the baking powder is well distributed.
The bake time of 15 minutes has always worked well for me. The tops of the scones may seem slightly light in color, but I find that they darken a bit more after taking the scones out of the oven. Plus, any additional time will really dry out the scones and not give them as nice of a texture when biting into them.
