Cream scones


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!!!
