Just look how simple they are:

With floured hands, pat dough into one large ball or two smaller balls and place on a greased cookie sheet. Pat down til you have a circle approximately 1 inch high. Use a floured sharp knife and cut into 8 even pie shaped pieces.  Sprinkle with granulated sugar.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes for softer scones or 17-18 minutes for a crispier scone. 

Remove from oven and let cool 10 minutes before cutting to serve. 

A great optional glaze could be 4 tbsp of milk a splash of vanilla and powdered sugar and drizzle over the top!
