Ingredients
For the scones
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
6 ounces unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1 cup buttermilk


For the Topping
1 tablespoon grated orange or lemon zest (I didn't use any)
2 ounces unsalted butter, melted, for brushing
1/4 cup sugar
4 tablespoons diced plump dried fruits, such as currants, raisins, apricots, or figs (optional)


Preparation
Makes 12 scones 

Position racks to divide oven into thirds and preheat to 425°F.  Stir flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together with a fork.  Add butter pieces and work it into the dry ingredients until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal.  Pour in 1 cup buttermilk and the zest, and mix until ingredients are just moistened.  If dough looks dry, add another tablespoon buttermilk.  Gather dough into a ball, turn it onto a lightly floured work surface, and knead briefly.  Cut dough in half. 
To Make Triangular-Shaped Scones, roll one piece of dough into a 1/2-inch-thick circle that is 7 inches across.  Brush the dough with half of the melted butter, sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of sugar, and cut the circle into 6 triangles.  Place the scones on an ungreased baking sheet and repeat with remaining dough.
Bake scones 10 minutes or until both tops and bottoms are golden.  Transfer to a rack to cool.


Nada como scones para desayunar! Fáciles, ricos y, más importante aún, riquísimos!
