Expert Tips

Scones, a soft dough quick bread similar to biscuits, originated in Scotland. Traditionally they were served for tea, but now are often served as a bread accompaniment for meals.

To substitute for buttermilk, add 2 teaspoons vinegar or lemon juice plus enough milk to make 3/4 cup.

Before baking the scones, brush them with 1/2 teaspoon buttermilk and sprinkle them with 1 teaspoon grated Parmesan cheese.
