The idea of making scones came as an afterthought to making cherry jam and was suggested by both of my telepathic parents. These didn't quite come out like the picture, but were just so soft yet crunchy, buttery yet light (Only 2 ounces of butter in the whole recipe!? No way...:O).
We made them quickly and enjoyed a nice little English Tea. My mum and I had ours with my fresh cherry jam and my sister had hers with a dollop of nutella. I'm waiting for my dad to get home to try them and give his verdict too.
My sister, inspired by Masterchef (as we were watching it at the time) got creative and made her own little 'Plating Squiggle'. <3

Note: We weren't able to roll out our dough-- it was too sticky. So we just dolloped it onto the baking sheet and shaped it a little with a knife.
There’s scope to customise these sweet ones with dried fruit or cinnamon.
Yield: 8-12 scones
