  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt together in a bowl. Cut butter into flour mixture using a fork, your hands, or a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Mix buttermilk into flour mixture until dough starts to stick together.
  3. Turn dough onto a floured work surface and shape into a 1/2-inch-thick circle. Cut dough into 4 wedges and then into 8 wedges using a sharp knife. Arrange wedges on the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until biscones are lightly browned, about 20 minutes.

pretty much not at all what I was hoping for, dry, crumbly, made it twice, second time added nuts and more butter and honey and cinnamon, made it much better. It has the flavor of plain pie crus...

Tasty treat to eat, but these 5 stars are mostly for the name. Use way more butter and honey to give it a definite taste for sure, and this recipe will become a 5 star.
