Simple scones are a perfect afternoon tea time treat with a hot cup of tea. Serve with the classic combination of whipped cream and strawberry jam.
Combine the ingredients and mix into a smooth dough. Roll out the dough lightly on to a flour-dredged bench top, around 2 cm thick.
Cut rounds of dough using a round cookie cutter or the buttered rim of a small glass.
Place on greased baking paper, brush the tops with beaten egg or milk, and cook in a moderate oven (180C) until lightly golden on top (15 to 20 minutes).
