    I accidentally cut out the SALT clip. Add a dash of salt to those dry ingredients.

    How to make these scones:

    2 cups of all purpose flour
    3 tablespoons of sugar (if you want them sweeter add more...amazing how that works)
    1 tablespoon of baking powder
    A PINCH OF SALT! I accidentally cut it out of the video DAMMIT.
    1 gallon of baking soda to keep you cool
    Wangjangle those ingredients together
    Chop up most of a stick of butter into little bits
    Mix them in and go chunk hunting
    Add in 1.5 cups of blueberries and some exterior lemon skin scrapings (I like a tablespoon ish)
    Make a little volcano cavity chamber impression
    Pour in one cup of cream...if you want your scones to be more cakey use half a cup of cream and 2 eggs. They'll also be more yellow.
    Barely mix the dough, don't overwerk it
    Put the dough on a floured surface and form it into some kind of rectangular shape
    Cut it in half. Then in half. Then in half. Then in half.
    Separate the pieces on a parchment papered pan. They are going to expand, just like the universe. Checkmate atheists.
    Bake them for around 20-24 minutes on 4 hundo.

    They're so good when they're still warm omg, with even more butter on them, OMFG SERIOUSLY.

    Also I want to try to Scottish British UK scones with clotted cream. Because even though the term "clotted cream" is the most unappetizing two words ever written, it looks incredible.

    Or use one of these which is where I started:

    I accidentally left out the salt clip. Put half a teaspoon of salt in the dry ingredients, please. Or 2/4 coffee spoon.

                            So a Doubloon back in the day was $16. Today 1 is worth $400. So a scone is either worth $64 or $1600.

                              You don't want the butter warm and melted, because in the cooking process-- it will allow the butter to crisp thee everything around it, almost like frying (ie the dough/ scone, etc). Giving it a salty buttery crispy taste. ENJOY!

                                                  Once my family and some family friends went up to Scotland for a holiday. One day scones were ordered. I have done my very best to stay out of the scone war (or alternatively, irritate everyone by calling them sconones, or sconones, so I simply watched as the families deteriorated into fighting, including getting the waitress involved.
                                                  They were good scones.
                                                  Also, there is also a war over which goes on top, the jam or cream. With this I have made a decision but will not admit it for fear of assassination in the night.
                                                  Tis a war that has claimed many casualties.

                                                    if you want crumbly American style scones, do you just use 1/2 cup cream + eggs? Or would i be substituting the flour with cake flour? Thanks!
