Hot cross scones


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 220°C/425°F/Gas Mark 7. Sift together the flour and icing sugar in a large bowl.
  2. Cut the butter into small pieces and rub into the flour mix, until it resembles breadcrumbs. Add the sultanas or currants.
  3. Make a well in the centre and add the milk to the mix, mixing as you pour.
  4. Turn the dough onto a floured work surface and lightly roll out to 2cm thick.
  5. Cut out 10 scones with the cutter, then put onto a greased baking tray.
  6. Mix the plain flour with the milk, roll out thinly and cut into ½ cm strips.
  7. Put a cross on the top of each scone, brush with some milk.
  8. Bake in the oven for 10-12 mins, until slightly risen and golden brown.
