1/4 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
6 tbsp. cold butter
1 egg yolk
½ cup butter milk**

Sift together dry ingredients. Add cold butter and using a pastry blender or 2 forks “cut” the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.

They are wonderful plain but are even better when drizzled with a little powdered sugar glaze. Just mix powdered sugar with lemon juice and drizzle. Store in airtight container. Reheat to serve in microwave for about 20 seconds.

** you can make your own buttermilk in a pinch for baking by combining 1 cup milk with 1 Tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice. Let stand for 5 minutes and it’s ready to use.

    • You failed to state what temperature to bake them at !?:dontknow:

      Up at the top under where it says what you need, it says preheat oven to 375. There are a lot of typos though too. I am going to try to make these and guess what some of the measurements are supposed to say?

  1. i just made this recipe for my family and they loved it! now i have to make it again, lol (oh boo hoo, right? ;)).

    i do want to point out that when you go to print the recipe we get 5 pages of full images and then 1 page of the recipe. I didn’t see quickly enough the box to check saying “no images.” But, if possible, you may want to remove the extra images.
