I find scones such a handy thing to have in the cake tin or freezer! Best eaten on the day they are baked I also freeze them that day for quick lunch box treats for later in the week.
450g plain flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
110g butter, cubed to 1cm
100g dried cranberries
1 egg, beaten
Preheat the oven to 210degrees Centigrade.
Line a baking sheet with baking parchment.
In a large bowl, pour the flour and add the cubed butter.
With your fingers, rub the butter in, it will take a while! By the end it should look like breadcrumbs.
Add the sugar and cranberries and mix through.
Add the milk and mix gently to form a dough.
Flour a surface and very lightly form the dough to 3-4cm thickness.
Either use a cutter or cut potions with a knife.
Place on the baking sheet and brush with a little egg.
Bake for 7-10mins, keep an eye on them!
Eat warm or allow to cool on a wire rack.
