Scones are a bread that’s like a biscuit. People often cut them into wedge shapes before baking, but you can also make scones as a loaf. The way you prepare the dough for your scones determines the outcome of this quick bread.
Combine the sugar, flour, salt and baking powder in a mixing bowl. Cut the butter into the mixture until you get a crumbly consistency.
Roll out your dough until it's a 1/2-inch thick circle. Cut the dough into wedges or use cookie cutters to make shaped scones.
