“I enjoy scones with morning tea or just an afternoon snack. Serve warm with clotted cream and strawberry jam.” - by BIANCA123
Original recipe yields 8 servings
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet or line with baking parchment.
- Sift flour and baking powder into a medium bowl. Rub butter and sugar into flour to form a fine crumble. Make a well in center, and add milk and currants. Knead gently together, being careful not to over mix. Dough will be sticky.
- On a generously floured surface, roll out dough to 3/4 inch thickness. Stamp out 2 1/2 inch rounds with a plain pastry cutter. Transfer to prepared pan, and brush tops with egg yolk. Allow to stand for 15 minutes.
- Bake in preheated oven until risen and lightly golden on top, 12 to 15 minutes. Remove to a rack to cool.

Thanks for the recipe!"
"These scones turned out fantastic! Moist & fluffy. I only had salted butter in but they still turned out great. The dough was a bit moist so I didn't bother rolling out the dough.
