How to Make Scones
250g or two cups or self raising flour
25g of butter or margarine
0.25 pint or half a cup of milk or sour cream
One beaten egg
Pinch of salt
Pre heat the oven to 200C / Gas Mark 6.
Sift the dry ingredients together and then rub in the butter. Pour in the sour cream/milk and then add the beaten egg in the centre of the mixture and mix to obtain a soft elastic dough.
Turn out onto a floured surface and roll out to about 0.5 inch thickness. Cut out rounds with a cutter (or cup if no cutter). Prick the rounds with a fork.
Bake in the pre heated oven for 10-15 minutes or until cooked.
Serve with jam and cream.
