1 1/2cupsall-purpose flourplus a little more for dusting
extra honey & butter for servingoptional, but definitely worth it!
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and lightly dust a baking sheet with a sprinkle of flour or line with parchment paper.
Mix together the flour and baking powder in a bowl. Cut up butter into small pieces. Slowly incorporate it to the flour mixture with your hands. It’ll resemble a consistency almost like wet sand or little breadcrumbs.
Add in the honey. And slowly mix in the milk, a little at a time. I usually just use my fingers to work it all together. But be careful not to overwork the dough. (see note)
Dust your countertop or workspace lightly with flour and roll out the dough. Roll it out between 1/2 inch to 1 inch or so.
Use a biscuit cutter. Or rings from a mason jar. Or a glass. Work with what you have! And cut out the scones.
Roll out any scraps of dough and cut up more scones to get as many as you can on to your baking sheet
Bake scones for about 8-10 minutes in a 400 degrees F oven.
While still warm, brush the tops of the scones lightly with butter and honey. Or if you crave a little more sweetness, drizzle a little more honey on top.
The dough will be sticky. If it is too sticky to work with, add a tiny amount of flour.
