Every baker needs a great scone recipe. Before you add berries, or raisins or any other flavour you need a great base recipe. This easy recipe for Buttermilk Scones is it. Scones are a perfectly British tea thing, but be it tea or breakfast, there is always room for a scone.
Tartine's currant scones recipe is the one I use year-round, studded with berries in the summer and currants in the winter. The recipe yields a huge batch, too, which is nice when planning for visitors, so go ahead and freeze the unbaked scones and bake them off on Thanksgiving morning. Tartine's lemon cream is as luscious as promised, and the perfect topper for freshly baked scone.
