When I was on a cruise in the Bahamas, I discovered scones. From then on, I have loved scones. Also try with 1 to 2 tablespoons of chocolate chips in place of the cinnamon.

  • Whisk the 2 cups flour, salt, baking soda, and cream of tartar together in a mixing bowl. Cut in the butter with a knife or pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir the buttermilk into the flour mixture until moistened.

  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead briefly, for five or six turns. Pat or roll the dough to about 1-inch thick. Cut into rounds with a floured 2-inch cutter and arrange rounds on the prepared baking sheet. Brush the tops of the scones with milk and sprinkle with cinnamon.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the scones have risen and are golden brown, 7 to 10 minutes.
