Cranberry Scones

This is very nice to eat on its own. Goes very well with a glass of milk. Quite like it for its simplicity. I have add some cranberry for a nice touch, taste good! I tweak the recipe from Baking Haven.

Cranberry Scones

115g self-raising flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
25g soft margarine
20g soft brown sugar
1/2 cup of cranberry (Add more if you like)
1/2 egg + milk (Add together to make 75ml)

Preheat oven to 220-deg. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
(A) Put flour and baking powder in a bowl, add margarine and rub it in with your fingertips till the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.

(B) In a separate bowl, crack egg into a measure, lightly beat it and then make up to 75ml with milk. Beat thoroughly egg mixture, sugar till well-blended.

Stir in (A) into (B) to a soft dough. And then add in the cranberries. Turn onto a lightly floured table, knead lightly and then roll out to 1/2 inch thickness.

Cut into desired shaped with a cutter to make an approx. 12 mini scones.
Place them, spaced, onto a large baking sheet; brush the tops with a lil milk and bake for about 8-10 minutes or till golden brown.
Remove scones and leave to cool on a wire rack!
