Star Scones!

Check out these tasty star scones, perfect for a Sunday Strawberry Tea! Actually I think they'd be perfect on a Monday, Tuesday, or even a Wednesday, probably on a Thursday, & especially on a Friday or Saturday! ;-)

My lovely hubby & Minnnie surprised me with a strawberry tea & these homemade treats. So I thought I'd share the recipe with you, but be warned they are very yummy!!

8oz self raising flour
1oz caster sugar
2oz unsalted butter
150ml milk
1 beaten egg

Preheat oven to 220C

1. In a large bowl rub the butter into the flour.
2. Add the sugar & stir, before adding the milk. Mix to form a dough.
3. Place dough mixture onto a floured work surface and knead lightly & flatten (approx 2cm thick).
4. Using a star shape cookie cutter, cut out the star scones.You could of course use any cutter, but if using a small shape just adjust your cooking time slightly.
5. Place scones on a baking sheet & brush the tops with the beaten egg.
6. Place in oven & bake for 12-15mins or until scones are well risen & golden.
7. Place on a wire rack & leave to cool slightly before serving.

They taste delicious when served warm with a little butter & jam. Nom nom nom!
