Cream tea anyone?
I use them a lot more at Xmas time, Nigella's Xmas being a fave,and you can always rely on Delia. It is from this book that my first offerings were created, I started by making scones, cakes, and biscuits from this, at the age of 10- just looked at the messy food splattered pages from those old days. I stick to this 100% but add in a handful of sultanas as we prefer them with fruit. I think to secret to wonderful fully light risen scones is not handling the dough for very long, roll it out quickly as you can and quite thick, I roll it out to 3/4 inch thick, brush with beaten egg or milk and don't over cook them
