Please note: only the ingredient list has been updated, you will need to allow for different cooking times, temperatures and quantities in each step.
Pre-heat the oven to 220°C / 425°F / Gas Mark 7 and grease a baking sheet.
Sift the flour into a bowl and rub the butter or margarine into it rapidly, using your fingertips.
Flour your hands and knead the mixture into a soft dough, adding a drop more milk if it feels at all dry.
When you have a nice soft dough turn it out onto a floured surface and roll out to around 2 cm (4/5") thick and cut out scones with your choice of cutter.
Bake near the top of your oven for about 12-15 minutes or until they are crisp and golden in colour.
