2 Tbsp granulated sugar
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 stick cold unsalted butter

1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp shaken buttermilk

Turn oven to 400 degrees. Butter baking pan or use parchment paper.

To make the sconces
1. In a bowl combine the first 5 ingredients.
2. Cube the cold unsalted butter into small bits, 1/4" size. Add to bowl.
3. Add the egg yolk and 1/4 cup of shaken buttermilk. Mix together until combined but do not over mix. It'll be sticky.

5. Brush the top of the scones with buttermilk.
6. Bake for 16 mins until lightly golden brown on top.
