Mum's Foolproof Scones

this recipe came from a friend of mum's, who gave it to her as her original scones were such bricks the chooks wouldn't eat them LOL (now you know why i can't make pastries and doughs etc, it's genetic hehe)

Foolproof Scones
(any idiot can make them! ;))

350g Self Raising Flour (2 ¾ cups)
½ cup Cream
1 tab Icing Sugar
milk as needed

Heat oven to 250’C.
Mix flour, cream, icing sugar to a dough. Add a little milk if needed.
Sprinkle some flour on a bench and roll out to approx. 1 ½ “ / 4cm thick.
Cut scones with a round cutter and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Be sure to place the scones touching each other.
Brush the tops with a little milk and cook until golden brown on top.
Let cool slightly and enjoy!

LOL - at least your mum tried. Funny story that was in the newspaper about somebody who moved to the country and took a bought Swiss roll to an afternoon tea - nobody ate it and at the end of proceeding somebody asked if anyone would like to take it home for their chooks. One lady replied "No, it would put them off the lay" :)
