    Lalaloula's Note:

    These are the fluffiest scones Ive ever made. They are so light and rise a lot, too. The key to getting them that way is to handle the dough as little as possible. You can also turn them into fruit scones by adding a desired amount of dried cherries, cranberries or raisins.

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    scones

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F.
    2. 2
      Sift flour, baking powder and salt into a big bowl. Using your finger tips work in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center.
    3. 3
      Whisk together milk and water and pour into the well reserving some liquid for glazing the scones.
    4. 4
      Quickly stir until a dough forms.
    5. 5
      On a lightly floured surface pat down gently and cut out scones (I use a glass of 7.5 cm in diameter). The dough will be kinda sticky, but you should be able to form it without problems. If not, add some more flour.
    6. 6
      Glaze scones with reserved water-milk-mixture and bake for 10-12 minutes.

      Very good and easy! The measurements I used were 1/2 cup butter, 3/4 cup milk and 3/4 cup water. Thanks for sharing!

      This was my first time making scones, and I have to say they didn't turn out for me. Maybe I did something wrong? They did not rise very much, and their centers were a bit chewy. I found the recipe directions unclear for a first-timer. The directions were to reserve some of the milk/water mixture for glazing, but how much? I reserved 2 tbs. of liquid, but the dough was too dry. Even after I added it all, the dough was still too dry. So then I added a few drops more for the dough to become slightly sticky as described. When I laid the dough on the baking sheet, I wasn't sure of the thickness of each scone. They took four minutes longer to bake than directed, and they still seemed underdone. Nonetheless, it was a nice experiment. I'll give my hand at making scones another try before throwing in the towel for good. My favorite bakery does a fine job anyway, and it's much less work! Thanks for sharing your recipe! (Made for AUS/NZ Recipe Swap #41)

      Perfect Scones. I added some chocolate chips to a few for my youngest daughter, which made her happy. I also enjoyed watching my Grandson have some with some milk :) I will defiantly make these again. Made for NZ/AUS Make my Recipe Edition #9
