Sunday's scones

I was in the middle of making these scones on Saturday when the electricity went down due to the wind. We settled for cold cereal and cool coffee. Sunday morning had more promise and the butter hit the flour and we were off.

2C. all purpose flour
1stick of butter(cold cut into small pieces)
1tsp salt
1tsp soda
1tsp baking powder
2Tbs buttermilk powder
1/2C water(too dry? add water by spoon fulls)
Place all dry ingredients in a bowl, cut in the butter until granular mix, add any mix-ins here(these scones have a 1/4 cup chopped pecans and walnuts mixed and 1/4 cup mixed dried fruit) mix egg and 1/2 cup water add to dry mix slowly trying to incorporate most of the liguid in the dry, turn out onto floured silicone mat and knead once or twice to finish incorporating ingredients. Pat into a circle about 3/4 inch thick
I then use a pizza cutter to cut the circle into
eight sections.

I place the silicone sheet on a baking sheet and bake at 375 for 20-30 minutes.
