   Scotland’s version of the scone, sometimes known as
   “Scot’s Pancake”. Looks more like a crumpet, though
   the texture resembles a pancake.
   Preheat a griddle or heavy skillet over high heat;
   grease lightly.  Sift flour, baking soda and salt into
   a large bowl.  Stir in sugar.  Add buttermilk, egg,
   and melted butter and mix well with a wooden spoon.
   Drop tablespoonfuls of batter onto griddle or skillet,
   spacing scones well apart.  Cook a few minutes or
   until tops are bubbling and undersides are golden
   brown; flip over with a wide spatula and cook until
   brown on other side.  As scones are cooked, wrap them
   in a cloth towl or napkin to keep them moist and warm
   while you cook remaining scones.  Serve warm with
   butter.  Makes 12 to 15 scones.
   VARIATIONS:  Fruit Drop Scones - Add 1/2 cup raisins
   (plumped) to dry ingredients.
