  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

  2. In a mixing bowl sift together 1 pound flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon baking soda. Make a well in the center. Pour most of the milk into the well. Using one hand, mix in the flour from sides of the bowl, adding more milk if necessary. The dough should be softish, not too wet and sticky.

  3. When it all comes together, turn the dough onto a well-floured counter. Wash and dry hands. Knead lightly for 1 second, just to tidy it up, flip over. Flatten into a 1-inch-thick square. Dot the top with olives. Brush generously with olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt.

  4. Cut into square scones and bake 20 minutes in a 450 degree oven.

  5. This recipe yields ?? servings.
