2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
6 tablespoons cold butter, cubed
1 large egg, room temperature
1/2 cup buttermilk
Jam of your choice, optional
Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and baking soda. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a small bowl, whisk egg and buttermilk until blended; add to crumb mixture just until moistened.
Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface; gently knead 10 times. Divide dough in half; pat each portion into a 5-in. circle. Cut each circle into 6 wedges.
Separate wedges and place 1 in. apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake until golden brown, 25-30 minutes. Serve warm, with jam if desired.
