The truly fattening kind!
3 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 cup butter or margarine
1 cup buttermilk
1 tablespoon lemon zest
Your choice of raisins; dried cranberries; or butterscotch, cinnamon, or chocolate chips
Cut softened margarine or butter into the mixture of flour and baking powder (you may use a stand mixer if you desire).
When the mixture resembles coarse meal, add buttermilk and zest and mix until the dough is combined.
On a lightly floured counter or board, mix in your choice of raisins, dried cranberries, or those wonderful commercial butterscotch, cinnamon, or chocolate chips.
Divide batter into 2 balls and pat into a circle until it is about 1/2 to 3/4" thick.
Cut into triangles and bake on a non-stick cookie sheet at 400 degrees for about 35 to 40 minutes until golden brown.
You may sprinkle the tops with about 2 tablespoons of sugar if desired before baking.
Serve warm or at room temperature accompanied by cinnamon spread.
