Ingredients

Method

1.Preheat oven to 200°C (fan-forced). Line an oven tray with baking paper. Put flours in a large bowl. Using your fingertips, rub margarine into flour until mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
2.Stir in sugar. Add milk, and using a flat-bladed knife, 
stir until the mixture starts 
to come together.
3.Turn out dough onto 
a lightly floured surface. Knead gently until dough just comes together (don’t knead too much as scones will be tough). Press 
or roll out dough to 2cm thick.
4.Using a 5cm cutter, 
cut out 18 shapes from dough, 
re-rolling when necessary. Arrange on prepared tray.
5.Brush tops of scones 
with extra milk and sprinkle with extra flour. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until scones are golden brown and cooked through. Serve warm or at room temperature.
