Step 1: Whisk in large bowl Add the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and cream of tartar to a large bowl and whisk everything together. Using clean fingers, blend the butter into the mixture until it is coarse and mealy. Tip You can use a pastry blender instead of your fingers. Step 2: Stir in buttermilk and egg Form a soft dough by stirring the buttermilk and egg into the mixture with a fork. Step 3: Knead the dough Put the dough on a lightly floured flat surface. Lightly flour your hands and divide the dough into thirds. Then knead each piece three or four times. Step 4: Form wedges Pat the thirds into round shapes and cut each piece into four wedges. Step 5: Heat griddle Heat the griddle or pan over low heat and lightly oil the surface. Step 6: Cook the wedges Split the wedges into two batches and cook them on the griddle. Dust the wedges with flour and cook on low for three minutes. Then turn the heat up to medium and cook for another three to five minutes, until the scones are puffed and golden brown. Step 7: Flip the wedges Flip the wedges over and cook for six minutes, until the other side browns. Then cook the edges for one minute each, until all sides are done and the scones are ready to eat.
