Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas 6.
Sift the flour, bicarb, cream of tartar and sugar into a bowl. Rub in butter until it is in crumb-sized pieces. Make a well in the centre and pour in the treacle and milk. Stir into a soft dough. Roll out on a floured surface and cut in to rounds with a biscuit cutter. Place on a baking tray.
Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the bottoms are lightly browned.
These were lovely,my kids loved them especially,but next time i might add a bit more sugar just to make them a bit more sweeter!I halved the amount of treacle,as when i have made treacle scones in the past they were too treacley,these were just right though! - 28 Aug 2013
