Instead of making cookies for Santa – why not leave him some scones?


  • 3 cups plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 75g butter
  • 1 cup milk


  1. Sift flour and baking powder into a large bowl.
  2. Rub the butter with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs into the bowl.
  3. Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture and add the milk.
  4. Mix into a soft dough.
  5. Knead lightly till smooth.
  6. Roll out onto a bench into 2 cm thickness.
  7. Cut out the scones with a plain round cutter.
  8. Place each scone onto a lightly greased tray – 1 cm apart.
  9. Bake at 210 degrees for 10-15 minutes

Serve with whipped cream and jam!
