Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 220C/450F/Gas mark 6. Grease a baking sheet.

Step 2

Sieve the flour into a large bowl, add the margarine and rub in to make breadcrumbs. Stir in the Truvia and a pinch of salt.

Step 3

In a jug beat the egg and add milk to make up to 150ml and then add the vanilla extract and mix through.

Step 4

Add the vanilla and egg milk mixture gradually and mix with a knife, you may not need to use it all, and I always save a little bit to glaze the top of the scones before baking. When the mixture starts to come together use your hands to form a ball, the dough should be soft but not sticky.

Step 5

Turn the scone dough out onto a well floured surface and gently roll out to a depth of about 2cm. Cut rounds and place on the greased baking sheet. Glaze with remaining egg and vanilla milk mixture and bake for 15-18 mins until risen and golden in colour.

Step 6

Sprinkle icing sugar over the tops of the scones just before serving, and serve with strawberry jam, strawberries and clotted cream. Or, for a VERY low calorie treat, just spread with low fat spread and low sugar jam!
