Christmas Scones

With the addition of mincemeat, these delicious scones taste just like Christmas. A Dairy Diary recipe.






Christmas Scones

Ingredients

Self-raising flour 225g (8oz)

Salt ¼ tsp

Butter 50g (2oz)

Mincemeat 5 tbsp

Milk 5 tbsp plus extra for brushing

Demerara sugar for sprinkling

Butter or clotted cream and plum jam to serve

Instructions

1

Preheat oven to 230°C/210°fan/Gas 8. Grease a baking sheet.

2

Sift flour and salt into a mixing bowl. Rub in butter until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add mincemeat and milk and briefly mix, using a round-bladed knife, to a soft but not sticky dough.

3

On a lightly floured surface, roll out to about 1.5cm (¾in) thick, then cut out rounds using a 7.5cm (3in) cutter. Transfer to baking sheet, brush tops with milk, then sprinkle with sugar.

4

Bake for 7–10 minutes until risen and golden. Cool briefly on a wire rack.

5

Serve warm or cold with butter or clotted cream and jam, if you like.
