Step 8: Transfer Dough to a Floured Surface and Shape

Place the dough onto a floured surface and fold it over a few times. Don't over work the dough or it will become tough.

Pat it out into a circle that is 8" to 10" wide and 1" thick.

Then, using a large knife, score and cut the dough into 8 even wedges.

If the knife sticks to the dough, you can use some flour on the edge of the blade to help ease it through.
Awesome flaky scones. I added chocolate chips instead of cranberries. Turned out amazing
DELICIOUS recipe. I didn't have all the cranberries/ginger/etc so I also made a batch of apple cinnamon scones, using your recipe as a base, and they were absolutely heavenly. About to make batch two as well and try it with blueberry next!
Note for future chefs wiser than I: if you make these with blueberries, ADD THE BLUEBERRIES AFTER THE BUTTERMILK. <br><br>My blueberries are squished, my scones are purple, and they still aren't mixed as well as the apple cinnamon ones. Oh well. They still taste good!
SCONES>STOMACH>DELICIOUS
They're in the oven right now! They smell amazing! I can't wait to try them with the honey butter I whipped up.
I just ate 3. They are AMAZING.. Yummm. My mom say they're are better than scones that you buy from stores. I made them with apple cinnamon. I diced 2 apples, and added lots of sugar and cinnamon. YUM!
Mmmm, scones.
They look awesome. Nothing like a good cream tea to make me feel all britishy and hoorah about things. yum
Mmmm, those look excellent! Any leftovers?<br/><br/>I'll still put in a plug for <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Cream-Scones-with-Blueberries-and-Lemon/">Cream Scones</a> as being just about the best thing ever. They're exceptionally light, and don't involve any of that messy creaming in of solid butter chunks.<br/>
But the cream scones recipe has no butter! I mean, have you ever just eaten a chunk of butter? Without a doubt, butter is the best thing ever.
BUTTTAH IS BETTAH THAN ANYTINGG!!!!!!!!
yes... butter is awesome... i blame it for my overweightness....
Ever had freshly churned butter? OMG.
hahahaha, i just ate one of those like 5 seconds ago...
mmmmmmm *drools* gonna have to make these!
What's the tattoo of?
oh man, I LOVE scones... They don't really sell them that much here, you really have to go out of your way to look for them I guess. But I guess I can try making them myself :D
Went to Ireland for a conference and discovered that they made scones in cupcake shapes/forms.... amazing,smart and handy if you would like to move them around, treating colleagues and such.
Yummmm... I made some blueberry scones a while ago. They were delicious. I just wasn't so careful with shaping them. I just plopped them on the cookie sheet and baked them. I'll have to try this recipie sometime.
I might actuallly make it! It looks GREAT!
