Cherrie or fruite scones


    I have made these for years, you can vary them,depending what you want in them, just 10 minutes to make and 15 minutes to cook


    Lancashire, England, UK
    4 people made this


    • 50g of cherries
    • 200mls Milk
    • 1 Egg
    • 225g SR Flour
    • 100g Margarine
    • 75g Casor sugar


    1. Sift SR flour into bowl and a pinch of salt
    2. add Castor sugar
    3. add Margarine and rub into flour and sugar with fingertips until resembles breadcrumbs. Do not mix for long time be as quick as possible the least you handle the mix the better add cherries or other fruit mix .
    4. break egg in the milk and mix ,add a little at a time to the mixture, till it forms into a dough that is not to wet , you do not need to use all the liquid ,
    5. when it is a dough roll out on floured board so it is about 4cm thick and use cutters to cut into scones .
    6. put on baking tray and brush tops with the remaining egg and milk mix
    7. place in preheated 200 C gas 5 oven for 10 15 minutes till golden and inside is cooked . Makes about 8 to 10 depending on size


    when scones are done hey should have a natural break line that is though middle of scone ,when scones are cool cut and fill with cream and strawberries, or eat with just butter ,or jam.
