Step 1:

First, combine the baking powder, flour, and sugar in one bowl big enough to squish your hands around in!

Step 2:

Using your fingers, combine the butter and dry ingredients by pinching it together and do what they call "rubbing it in."

Step 3:

Mix eggs and milk into dry mixture

Step 4:

The dough is going to be stickier than you might be used to, but it should be dry enough that you can press it out and cut it out into circles.

Step 5:

Brush the tops with the leftover egg and milk mixture, either using a pastry brush or a paper towel.

Step 6:

Bake the scones until they go golden, about 12 to 15 minutes.


Cut in half and decide which way you're going to put the jam and clotted cream on.
