This recipe came from a CWA cookbook… The CWA ladies are queens of the scones!!! This is such a simple recipe – a must have recipe for those times when you have very little time to knock up a winner!!!
I halved the original recipe – this makes about 14 – 16 depending on the size of your cutter…
3 cups SR flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1/2 cup cream
Preheat oven to 220C. Sift your flour and salt into a bowl. Add cream and milk and use a knife to mix together. Turn out onto a floured board and pat out to your required thickness. Do not be tempted to knead the dough – this will stop the scones from being light and fluffy! Use a cutter dipped in extra flour to cut out the scones (I actually use a tall drinking glass to do this as it’s just the right size). Pop the scones onto a tray lined with baking paper and pop into the oven for about 20mins until golden. I actually place the tray on top of a heated pizza stone as this means I don’t have to preheat the tray.
Serve with whipped cream and jam of your choice – delish!!!
