Monty Scones

This is a Monty family recipe and, like all Monty recipes, it's super easy and a real crowd pleaser. I hope they don't mind if I share this recipe with you.

They only take about half an hour from sifting the flour to delicious mouthfuls: we've been making them as after work treats. This recipe would be perfect if you have unexpected guests drop by too.

oh. so. good.

We added a couple of handfuls of sultanas in the last batch we made, but the recipe below is for your plain regular scones.


Monty's Scones

2 cups self-raising flour
2 tablespoons icing sugar
pinch of salt

1 egg yolk (we didn't bother to separate the yolk from white), lightly whisked, in 1 cup then topped up with milk

1. Preheat oven at 200degC.

2. Combine dry ingredients. Sift twice.

3. Make well in dry ingredients, add the 1C egg/milk mixture. Gently combine.

4. Turn onto floured surface. The mixture will be quite sticky. Knead for 1-2 minutes, until the mixture comes together.

5. Flatten with palm to 2cm thickness. Cut out 5cm circles with cookie cutter. Place on floured tray, with sides touching.

6. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until golden brown.

7. Makes about 10. Eat with jam and cream of course!
