This is the best recipe I have found for plain scones! It is from Flo Bjeilke-Peterson's Country Cooking book, and they come out perect every time. The secret it to hve the tray really hot before you put the scones on.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Sift flour and salt into a bowl.
  2. Melt butter and pour into flour.
  3. Add milk gradually, stirring with a knife, until you have a moist dough.
  4. Turn onto a floured board, knead lightly, then press dough out until it is about 1 inch thick.
  5. Cut with a cookie cutter or glass, and place on a hot floured tray, with each scone touching.
  6. Bake at 220C for 10-15 minutes.
  7. Serve hot with chilled butter, and strawberry jam!

Excellent scones - light and fluffy, perfect crust. I agree, make sure the tray is hot.

Thanks for the great recipe.

This makes nice traditional scones, although the original quantity of 1 cup of milk was too much and I have submitted a correction to 1/2cup of milk instead. Lovely with jam and cream!
