Beat the egg and buttermilk together. Make a well in the centre of the flour and add the buttermilk mixture. Using a butter knife, gently cut into the liquid to form a soft dough. Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and gently roll to a thickness of 2cm. Cut out rounds using a cookie-cutter. Place the scones on a greased baking tray. Brush the tops with some of the egg glaze. Bake for 10–12 minutes or until puffed up and golden.
