I used to ask my Mormor to make these because I loved the TV series Upstairs Downstairs!

Makes 8

You will need:
2 cups plain flour
5 tablespoons sugar
1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
1⁄3 cup cold, salted butter, in pieces
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1⁄2 cup milk

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, and baking powder.
  3. Add butter and work it into the flour with your fingers. The result should be a grainy mixture.
  4. In a small bowl, mix together egg, vanilla, and milk.
  5. Pour the egg mixture into the dough and mix together quickly. (I find using my hands works best, so you don’t overwork the dough.)
  6. Sprinkle some flour on a surface and roll the dough out to 1-inch thick.
  7. Use a cutter to cut out the scones.
  8. Place on a baking tray covered with parchment paper.
  9. Brush with milk and bake until golden, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  10. Cool and enjoy with lots of butter and jam!
