8. Divide circle into 12 triangles, by cutting dough like a pie or pizza.

9. Arrange on greased cookie sheet about 1" apart.

10. Bake 10 - 12 minutes in 400 degree oven until lightly browned.

Servings: 12 Scones

The Recipe calls for salt but I usually leave it out because the Baking Soda has a lot. I also do not grease my cookie sheet and have had no problems with the Scones sticking.
