  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup cream

Preheat oven to 400*

Cut butter into dry mixture.

Stir wet ingredients into dry mix. Mix with wooden spoon until just mixed through. Don’t overwork the dough!

Turn out onto a floured surface and cut into pieces. You can make a circle and cut wedges or make a rectangle and cut square pieces.

Bake for 20-25 minutes. Don’t use a cooking pan without edges as the butter will melt off the edges of the pan onto the bottom of your oven.
