Granny Griffins Secrets from her treasured recipe book

in your kitchen
Have all your ingredients as cool as possible.
Mix all the dry ingredient well first and then add cubes of butter. You need to do
this with very coldhands. As they say cold hands .... Warm heart.
Dont over work these ingredients. Then out with a fork and mix in the eggs and milk
mixture to a nice wet consistency.
Cool your hands with water again and knead the mixture. Handle the dough with love,
Never ever over work it.
Roll out the mixture on a cool table to a thickness of an inch high.
Cut with a cool scone cutter. never twist the scone cutter. Try to cut straight down.
Glaze scone with an egg. Top and sides. This will help your scones stand proud.
Put scones into your warm oven as quickly as possible.

Always bake your scones with love and quality ingredients.
