How to make English Scones
Mix Together the Dry Ingredients
Mix the flour, baking powder and sugar in a large bowl. Then add your cold butter, mix until the butter has just combined, as in the mixture still looks pretty dry but there are not large chunks of butter.
Add Liquid Ingredients and Shape
Add half of the milk and egg mixture and continue to add until you have a cohesive scone batter, you want your scone batter to be pretty dry so it holds its shape
Cut Scones and Bake
Using a 2.5-3 inch cutter make your individual scones. Place 8 on a Silpat lined half sheet baking sheet then brush with an egg wash
Top With Clotted Cream
Give each half of the scone a generous slathering of clotted cream.
Add your favorite jam on top
