MONDAY MUNCHIES - Scones
There is nothing quite like warm scones, jam and cream accompanying a cup of tea on a cool afternoon. I don't make them as often as I should, and this afternoon my boys will be thrilled to snack on these little wonders.
* 2 cups of self-raising flour
* 30 grams of butter
* 1/2 cup of milk
* 1/2 cup of water
* Jam and cream to serve
Preheat oven to a hot 200 degrees. Lightly grease a tray.
Sift flour into a bowel, add butter, and rub in gently using your fingers.
Make a well in the flour and pour in combined milk and water all at once, keeping a tablespoon aside. Using a knife, mix ingredients quickly to combined and form a soft sticky dough.
Turn onto a floured surface and knead lightly.
Roll out to form a round shape at about 2cm in thickness. Cut into shape using a cookie cutter and place them on the greased tray close together. Brush with reserved liquid and bake for 12-15 minutes. Cool scones on a wire rack and serve with whipped cream and jam.
