Scones are the easiest thing to make. Always remember to have the dough moist. If the mixture is too dry add more moisture.
The recipe I use all the time is just so simple:-
3 cups Self Raising Flour
300 ml container of cream
300 ml milk (full or skim)
2 tsp sugar
Mix altogether, lightly knead on a floured bench. Cut out with a cutter or a knife. Bake at 210C for about 12 minutes.
If you want to make savoury scones, omit the sugar and add some bacon, cheese, parsley to the mixture. In fact you can add anything to the mixture, dates, sultanas - anything you fancy.
Now sit down, relax and enjoy your lovely risen scones.
