  9. Turn out onto lightly floured surface and knead 6-8 times.
  10. Roll dough to a thickness of 1 inch.

*Ghee is wonderful to bake with but is semi-solid at room temperature. In order to make scones, refrigerate the ¾ cup ghee for 4 hours before making this recipe, or use cold butter instead.

**Fifteen drops of stevia produces a very lightly sweet scone; add up to 45 drops for sweeter scones.

~ Makes 12 servings.
