Step 7: Cut the dough

Using a floured biscuit cutter, cut the dough into rounds and place them onto the baking tray. Brush the top of the scones with a little milk to give them a golden color.

Step 8: Bake in the oven

Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the scones are golden brown and sound hollow when tapped on the top.

Tips:

  • If you want to avoid using your hands to mix the butter into the flour, you can use a food processor.
  • For a richer flavor, you can add 1/4 cup of sultanas, currants or chopped dried apricots to the dry ingredients before mixing with the wet ingredients.
  • For a savory twist, you can add grated cheese or chopped herbs to the dry ingredients.
