Secret to perfectly flaky scones:
When the butter melts in your dough while baking in the oven it creates little pockets where steam expands and helps the dough rise. If you have butter that is melty before you get to the dough to the oven, you lose those pockets of gas expanding, leaving you with a denser, less fluffy scone.
Using cold butter when making scones (and then freezing the dough) ensures you have as little melting BEFORE the dough hits the oven...resulting in a buttery and flaky pastry!
