this kind of flakey is acceptable!!

As a cold front approached and garnered the potential for some flurries in the night sky, I took it upon myself to make sure flakes showed up! My flakes, however were in the form of buttery golden topped buttermilk scones.
With a recipe consisting of pantry and crisper staples… flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, sugar, buttermilk, eggs, butter and shortening, soon some gorgeous scones would be pulled from my oven… After sifting all of my dry ingredients, it was time to cut in the chunks of butter and shortening. As soon as my mixture began to gain a crumbly existence, it was dampened with some tangy buttermilk, stirred lightly until combined [not overworked] and then turned out onto my workspace to be brought together into a wobbly [nobody’s judging], lengthened ‘disk’. From this disk the scones were gently plucked out one by one, layered on a baking sheet, brushed with an egg wash and baked off…
Once puffed and bronzed, it was off to cool and then be slathered later with some scarlet-colored rhubarb jam and enjoyed with a hot cup of tea.

at a low simmer…
