Be sure to use really cold butter. This will make your scones rise nicely.
- Grease a baking sheet. Set aside.
Sift flour with baking powder and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal.

Roll out dough on a floured surface to a 1/2-inch thickness. Cut out 2-inch circles with a biscuit cutter or a drinking glass, and place on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake in a preheated 400°F oven, for 15 minutes or until well-risen and lightly browned.
Serve hot, with butter and jam.
