Preheat oven to 240 degrees.
Into a large bowl:
500g SR Flour
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!
