Miss Bowser (1B)

 

Scones (Makes 16 scones)

Ingredients

225g (8oz) self raising flour

1 level teaspoon of baking powder

50g (2oz) butter or margarine

25g (1oz) caster sugar

125ml (1/4 pint) milk

Extra milk for brushing.

Scone cutter 

Method

Turn oven on to heat up 190°C, 450°F or Gas Mark 8. Grease two baking sheets with butter or margarine.

Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl. Cut margarine or butter into small pieces and add them to the flour.

Rub the margarine or butter into the flour until the mixture looks like fine breadcrumbs. Add the sugar and milk.

Press and mould with your fingers until it looks like a soft dough.

Sprinkle an area of your work surface with flour and put the dough onto it. Roll out the dough.

Cut circles from the dough using the cutter. 

Put the circles onto the baking sheet, leaving plenty of space between each one. Brush the tops with a little milk, this will help them to go golden brown on top.

Bake the scones for 7 to 10 minutes in the oven. 

Then take out and put on a wire rack to cool.
