    Preheat oven to 240 degrees.

    Into a large bowl:
    500g SR Flour
    110g Margarine
    50g Caster Sugar

    Gently rub in the butter until flour/sugar resembles fine breadcrumbs.

    Dig a well in the centre and pour in 300mls cold milk.

    Use a spatula to very gently scrape the flour from the outside of the bowl into the middle. Once it is barely together (and you need a very light hand with your 'mixing') tip out onto a pre-floured benchtop. Gently bring it all together with your hands and give it a very light knead - two or three kneads only.

    Pat out to about an inch thick and cut scones out with cutter. Place onto a greased tray and baste each scone with milk.

    Into the oven for 15 minutes and you're done!

    Scones can be a bit tricky to make, so hats off for your awesome effort.

    Thanks Luv😊

    Will give them a go😊 I'm working on my "scone skills" as they're a weakness in my baking armour so am trying hard to get them right.

    I used to have trouble with them too. In the end I found the less you handle them and the gentler you are with them, the lighter the texture in the end.

    My husband would have married you @Blossom74 if he knew you could make scones like that. I will try the recipe though. Thanks for sharing!!

    Bah ha ha, I can barely cope with the husband I have! Still, he is a happy camper today so that's good!

    Do have a go with them. Aside from my first batch which failed miserably and ended in tears (I over-kneaded - a rookie mistake!) the recipe has never failed me.
