Garlic Scone                                                                 Preparation and cooking time:    25 minutes
     These are delicious warm, but, like many biscuits, barely edible the next day.  This is actually half of my original recipe, but it's perfect for two.  Double it and make two scones if you want more.  This is not going to look like nice bread dough before baking, but it manages to come together in the oven - magic!

1 1/8th cups flour (1/8 = 2 tbs)
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
2 tbs butter
1/2 tsp garlic powder  or 2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/3 cup milk

Mix all dry ingredients in medium bowl.  Cut in butter with pastry cutter or fork until it looks like 'crumbs'.  Add milk and stir until sort of combined.  Dump the whole floury mess onto a nonstick baking sheet and pat it into a 3/4 inch (2cm) thick round with your hands - but don't handle it a lot.  If possible, knead it once or twice then just pat and push into shape.  It will be 5 - 6 inches in diameter.  With a long knife carefully divide it into 6ths, cutting about 1/2 way through.  Bake at 450F (230C) for 12 - 14 minutes, until lightly browned.  Remove, cut alone scored lines and serve, warm, with butter.
