Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until biscones are lightly browned, about 20 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Whole wheat flour can be used in place of the all-purpose.
