Too sticky to handle may need 1 more cup of self rising flour could not do

The scones are quite tasty, the small amount of sugar is just right for a sweet scone. Like Canary Bird Sue, I found the dough a bit too moist. I measured out the 5 ounces of milk and added the egg to the cup which made a total of 6 ounces of liquid, just a bit too much in my opinion! The egg was quite large and I should not have added all the liquid to the flour mixture; however, I floured my board, scrapped all the dough out of the bowl and gently kneaded a little more flour into it, just until it was not too sticky, patted it out and cut the scones. They turned out fine, but next time I would only add enough of the liquid to make a soft and 'not too sticky' dough. We enjoyed them with some butter and honey!

I'm not an experienced baker but I didn't have a lot of luck with this recipe. It came out more like a batter than a sticky dough. Maybe it isn't always necessary to add all the milk/egg mix.

These were the best scones ever! I added rainsins and they were very delicous, especially with clotted cream and jam :) My husband is from England and he raved how great they were. Thanks

These scones had a nice flavor. We had them for breakfast instead of biscuits. They were easy to make. Will have them again. Thanks Gingerbee. Bullwinkle

I've had these scones in England, and they are very delicious!! I suggest that anyone who reads this recipe should make it. P.S. I suggest rasberry jam, :) !!!
