-------- ------------ -------------------------------- 
2 cup  flour
2 Tbsp  sugar
1 Tbsp  baking powder
1/2 tsp  salt
1/4 cup  shortening
2   eggs
1/2 cup  milk or light cream
 
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. 
Combine dry ingredients. 
Cut in shortening with two knives or a pastry blender until mixture has 
the consistency of coarse cornmeal. 
Set aside. Reserve a little of the egg whites (to brush over tops of 
scones) and beat eggs until light. Stir in milk. 
Make a well in the dry ingredients and add liquid all at once, stirring 
with a fork vigorously until dough comes freely from the sides of the 
bowl. 
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat dough out to 
3/4-inch thickness. 
Cut into 8 triangles or squares or form into "biscuits". 
Brush tops with egg whites and sprinkle generously with sugar. 
Place on an ungreased baking sheet. 
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until tops are golden. 
Variations: Raisin Scones Add to dry ingredients 1/2 cup seedless 
raisins, currants, Craisins or other fruits (fresh blueberries or 
raspberries, apple chunks etc). 
Cheese Scones Reduce sugar to 1 teaspoon. Add 1 cup of shredded sharp 
cheese to dry ingredients. 
Do Not sprinkle with sugar before baking.
