Recipe adapted from Delicious. 




  1. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees. Lightly butter a baking tray and set aside. Place flour, butter and a pinch of salt in a bowl and gently rub butter into flour, lightly lifting the mixture as you go to get air into it. Make a well in the centre and pour in the milk and cream. Mix with a flat bladed knife, cutting the mixture so that you barely pull it together.
  2. Turn out dough onto a floured surface. Flatten with the heel of your hand to about 3cm thick and using a pastry cutter, cut out 12 scones. Place the scones close together on the tray. Brush tops with a little more cream, then bake for 12-15 minutes. The scones are ready when they feel firm when squeezed in the middle.
  3. Serve with jam and cream. Enjoy!
