Stages of cooking

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  2. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl; cut in butter with 2 knives or a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Whisk milk and egg in a small bowl; gradually stir into flour mixture until moistened.
  3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead briefly, 5 or 6 turns. Pat or roll dough out into a 1/2-inch thick round. Cut into 8 wedge-shaped pieces and place onto the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake scones in the preheated oven until golden brown on top, about 15 minutes. Cel1664
