“The lightest scones I ever had, but be careful it requires a light hand. Don't overmix and knead the dough too much or they will turn out very tough. Undermix in better.Use only a small amount of flour on the kneding board and knead lightly until very smooth.Add a little sugar to take away any floury taste. Before baking, brush top with milk for golden shiny tops.”
