What is Scone?

A scone is a baked good, usually made of wheat, or oatmeal with baking powder as a leavening agent and baked on sheet pans. A scone is often lightly sweetened and occasionally glazed with egg wash. The scone is a basic component of the cream tea.

1. Sieve the flour, baking powder, Icing sugar, and salt into a bowl.

2. Using just your fingertips, rub in the cold diced butter into the flour until it is no longer visible.

5. Re-roll the dough until you have used it all taking care not to over handle it.

6. Brush the tops of the scones with milk or egg wash.

7. Bake in the oven for approximately 15 minutes until golden brown. Do not over bake the scones or they will be dry.

8. Serve the scones warm with Cornish clotted cream and Strawberry jam or the flavour of your choice.
