Hints for making scones.

Sift baking powder, flour and salt.

Rub in butter thoroughly but quickly and lightly using the tips of
your fingers, until mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

Mix in milk lightly and quickly, using a knife.

Make a soft dough.

Turn on a lightly floured board and knewad lightly.

Roll lightly to about 12-20mm (1/2 to 3/4 inch) thick. Cut into
shapes.

The flour you use is important, use a flour with a high protein
content.

The recipe is made using a baking powder made with cream of tarter
as the main ingredient. If using a baking powder with a food
phosphate as the main ingredient, warm the milk slightly before
use.

Mix lightly but quickly. Overhandling will result in a tougher
product.
