Fancy A Scone Or Two?



Scones are the easiest English teatime treat.


Ingredients

225g flour
pinch of salt
55g butter
25g caster sugar
150ml milk
1 egg, beaten, to glaze

Preparation
  1. Heat the oven to 220C. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  2. Mix together the flour and salt and rub in the butter.
  3. Stir in the sugar and then the milk to get a soft dough.
  4. Turn on to a floured work surface and knead very lightly. Pat out to a round 2cm thick. Use a 5cm cutter to stamp out rounds and place on a baking sheet. Lightly kneas together the rest of the dough and stamp out more scones to use it all up.
  5. Brush the tops of the scones with the beaten egg. Bake for 12-15 minutes until well risen and golden. 
  6. Cool on a wire rack. 









Moist, tender scones, sweet or savory, are perfect any time of the day - from breakfast to late-night snack.

    1. The texture is not so soft as a bun and the taste can be a bit savoury. It definitely needs jam on it to be complete.
