2 t. baking soda

2 t. cream of tartar

2 t. sugar

Preheat oven to 425 F.

In a bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and sugar.

Add the butter and shortening, and rub into the flour mixture with fingers.

Add buttermilk, and mix to form a dough.

Lightly flour a work surface, and pat the dough out 1 1/2 in. thick.

Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

Brush tops with beaten egg.

Bake for 12 minutes, or until golden.

Cool on a wire rack and serve with clotted or whipped cream and jam.
