SCONES

METHOD
Step 1
Preheat oven to 200°C. Sift self-raising flour into a large bowl.
Step 2
Using your fingertips, rub butter into flour until mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
Step 3
Make a well in the centre. Add 1 cup of milk. Mix with a flat-bladed knife until mixture forms a soft dough, adding more milk if required. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently until smooth (don’t knead dough too much or scones will be tough).
Step 4
Lightly dust a flat baking tray with plain flour.
Step 5
Pat dough into a 2cm-thick round. Using a 5cm (diameter) round cutter, cut out 12 rounds. Press dough together and cut out remaining 4 rounds. Place scones onto prepared baking tray, 1cm apart. Sprinkle tops with a little plain flour. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden and well risen. Transfer to a wire rack. Serve warm with jam and cream.

Brilliantly light and tasty scones and so easy to make. This will be my standby when unexpected visitors show up. Yummy & scrummy. The secret is in not overworking the dough.

Delicious, easy to make. I put all the ingredients in my Kitchenaid mixer with the dough hook and they come out perfect every time. Yum!

Mmmmm, always my favourite party.

Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)
