British Herb Scones (Biscuits)
30 mins (prep 20, cooking 10)
8 ingredients
10-12 servings
Delicious served warm. Top each half-scone with a little Sweet Sour Beetroot Relish (posted separately), a small dollop of soured cream, and garnished with a mint leaf, or just enjoy with butter. The secret to good scones is not to over-mix the dough, and to cook them in a hot oven. Another tip is not to cut scones in half - just start the cut with a knife, then pull apart with fingers.
