Step 1- Preheat oven to 200 C fan-forced. Grease a pan and lightly dust it with flour. Position the over rack in the top half of the oven.

Using a flat bladed knife, gently stir until the dough comes together. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 30 seconds or until just smooth.

Step 3- Press dough into a 2 cm-thick round. Using a 5 cm round cutter, cut out scones. Press leftover dough together and repeat to make 12 scones. Place scones, just touching, in prepared pan. Burs with extra milk and bake for 14-16 mins or until golden. Cut one scone in half and put jam and cream in the middle and dust with icing sugar.
