This afternoon was a lonely one --- hubby and daughter out. So after the chores were finished I baked some scones, they always cheer me.
This is my favourite recipe,
Rub 2ozs of margarine into 8 ozs of s.r. flour till resembling breadcrumbs.
Add 1oz of sugar and 2 ozs of dried fruit.
Bind together with 1 egg beaten with 1 quarter pint of milk. I don't use all of this .
Roll out on a floured board till about 2 inches deep.
Cut into rounds, my mix made 6 scones.
Brush with remaining beaten egg and bake at 425 degrees for about 10 mins.
Cool on wire rack.
